Kickin' Turkey and Peppers (clean)

This dish gets its kick from jalapenos and cayenne pepper, which can both be adjusted to suite your 'spiciness level'. Super easy and quick!

Kickin' Turkey and Peppers (clean)

Serves approx. 8 (depending on how much filling you use)


1.5 lbs ground turkey
1/2 tsp garlic powder, or 1 tsp minced garlic
1-2 T dried, diced jalapeƱos (you could definitely use fresh, just used what we had on hand)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 bag frozen peppers (again, you could use fresh, just what we had on hand)
1 tsp dried cilantro


Heat a large saucepan to medium heat and cook peppers just until tender. Remove from pan and set aside. (You could easily do this part in the microwave as well, 6 minutes covered.)
Adjust heat to medium-high and add the turkey, salt, paprika, cayenne and jalapeƱos. Cook until turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add peppers and cilantro and cook for another 3-4 minutes. 

Serve in warm, whole wheat pitas, with a little Greek yogurt inside, if you typically like sour cream.
The rest of my family used sour cream and cheese. The filling is even yummy just by itself!
