You mentioned your mother used jalapeno peppers at one point – How much would you recommend and at what point would you add them in?
Add minced jalapeno with the garlic at the end of Step 1. How much jalapeno? I always tell people to taste a tiny bit of the raw jalapeno so they can decide themselves. They vary so much from pepper to pepper. Happy cooking!
We’ve enjoyed this many times but I do have to drain the turkey (85/15% fat). What type do you use, Elise?
Elise likes to use ground turkey thighs, which do have some nice, tasty fat on them. Oftentimes ground turkey gives off a lot of liquid as it cooks that’s *not* fat (I think this is because turkey meat is often treated with a saline solution). You want to leave a little liquid and fat in there to keep this nice and moist. Does that help?
what seasoning did you use besides chili powder? this recipe sounds kind of tasteless. Paleo does not mean salt or sage or any other seasoning!
The cilantro, onion and bell pepper will add a lot of flavor. Don’t need a lot of spices for this.
Loved this!! I also added diced tomatoes, and used chili powder and smoked paprika to season. My husband had it over rice, I ate it plain. We both loved it!!
Cheap, easy, and very delicious. Meets the college student budget by far and will be making this once a week if not more.
Very easy healthy delicious ground turkey recipe.
Simple and great recipe!
Followed the recipe to the “t” and it was delicious!
I was looking for a ground turkey meal and came across this recipe. I made it just as stated with a bed of rice. Topped of with a little soy sauce. Perfect!! Thank you so much
Tasted good, at the end there was too much Olive Oil, made it super oily. I’d recommend not adding any olive oil to the pan when you add the turkey.
I made this tonight for dinner. I didn’t have yellow onions but I used scallions and white onions along with green and red onions. I also left out the garlic cloves and used garlic powder instead as well as Tony’s Creole seasoning instead chipotle or chilli powder. I read the comments and decided to try soy sauce too. All I can say is…..OMG!!!I served it over brown rice. My husband took one bite and gave me a thumbs up. He’s a picky eater so I was so thrilled to see him chowing down. I will most definitely will be making this again. Thank you mom for such a great one pot meal.
I’m so glad you liked it Sabrina! I had it for dinner tonight too. So glad the substitutions worked well for you, but I’m not surprised, it really is a flexible recipe.
Followed recipe but also added additional ingredientsfrom other reviews, to add more flavor. Red & green bell peppers
Tb of canned minced Chipotle peppers, chili powder,onion powder, garlic powder, smoked pairing, chili powder, coriander, cumin, Can of pinto beans 1 1/2 cups water with 1 1/ 2 t beef-better than bullion topped it with cilantroand shredded cheddar served over Brown rice.Full of flavor & Delish!
I have to admit, I made quite a few tweaks to this but boy was it delicious!
-Seasoned the ground turkey with Salt, pepper and chipotle powder.
– used four andouille Turkey sausage links, casings removed and mixed that in with the ground turkey.
-Used a bag of mini sweet peppers
-Added one can of fire roasted tomatoes with the onion and peppers.
– Doubled the chipotle powder, added 2 teaspoons of cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt and doubled the garlic.
– added one can of drained Black beans and 2 cups of chicken broth to keep it moist.
-Served over Cauliflower rice.
Did not care for it much. I added a little more Greek olive oil, to make it a little less dry.
Don’t think I would make it again :(
This is so easy and SO tasty!! Perfect for our gluten, soy, corn, sugar, dairy, egg free house . Thank you.
Yum Oh!!! Thank you.
I made this and loved it. Thank you for sharing! :) Do you have the nutrition facts for this recipe?
Hi, RoRo! We don’t currently calculate nutrition info for our recipes. I’d suggest plugging the ingredients into an online nutrition calculator, like this one. Thanks!
Made this tonight. From Gayles recommendation I used a whole bag of multi colored sweet peppers and made a double batch. I ate mine on an almond tortilla and some extra on the side and my husband ate his over rice.
Really enjoyed this! I hadn’t had ground turkey since I tried it years ago & didn’t like it. Found this recipe, decided to give it another try, and I’m glad I did. Low cal, low fat, nutritious, simple, and tasty, can’t ask for more than that. For those who found it bland, I disagree. The Adobe Chile powder made mine perfectly spicy & the cilantro gave it another level of flavor. Maybe OP is right, to little salt? Either way, thanks for sharing. ☺
I made this tonight and it turned out awesome! Will definitely be making this again.
