  2. Flip the cupcake pan over and spray 8 of the cups with cooking spray.
  3. Flatten the biscuit and form over 8 of the cupcake cups.
  4. Bake for 16 minutes. They may touch while baking, but they will come apart easily. 
  5. While the biscuits are cooling, heat a skillet over medium heat. 
  6. Cook the ground turkey breast until brown.
  7. While the meat is cooking, dice 1 tomato, 1 jalapeno and 1/4 green pepper.
  8. Stir in 3/4 cup water and taco seasoning to skillet.
  9. Once the water has cooked out, stir in the tomato, jalapeno and green pepper.
  10. Remove from skillet after an additional 2-3 minutes.
  11. Let cool.
  12. Fill taco bowls with shredded lettuce, a scoop of the ground turkey breast mixture (roughly 2oz per bowl if you divide evenly, if you want 4oz, you will need 2-lbs of ground turkey breast) and top with cheese if desired. Salsa on the side.
