Caribbean Taco Salad

I saw this recipe on the JENNIE-O TURKEY STORE website and had to try it. The only difference I made was I whipped up a homemade taco seasoning because we rarely have packaged on hand. You NEED to try this. I made a non-spicy batch for the kids and it was gone.
Oh, only 300 calories. Cool, huh?
4 10-inch whole wheat flour tortillas
Olive oil cooking spray
1 20-ounce package JENNIE-O TURKEY STORE Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 1.25-ounce package reduced-sodium taco seasoning mix
2 tablespoons water
1 mango, peeled, pitted and chopped (about 1 cup)
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 cups firmly packed spinach leaves
Preparation: Preheat oven to 425°F. Invert four, 10-ounce custard cups onto 15- by 10- by 1-inch baking pan. Spray outside of cups and one side of each tortilla with cooking spray. Place tortillas, oiled side up, over cups. Bake 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned. In medium skillet, brown turkey until no longer pink and cooked through. Add taco seasoning mix and water. Cook over low heat 3 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together the mango, bell pepper, green onion, cilantro and lime peel to make salsa. Place taco shells on serving plates. Divide spinach leaves evenly into shells. Top with cooked turkey and salsa.
