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 jalapeños (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 jalapeños. 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!
