Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Brush potatoes with olive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Bake for 60 minutes. (If your potatoes are on the smaller side, check them at 45 minutes).

Mix all seasonings together in a small bowl. Cook turkey adding the seasonings. Once the turkey is cooked add the salsa and cook for a couple minutes. Set aside.
