I have a picky 5 yo dtr who eyeballs and vetoes most food groups, but does eat most things Mexican I seasoned the meat with onion powder, garlic powder, sun dried tomato bits, and lawrys chicken (and turkey) seasoning while I browned the meat and added a can of diced tomatoes (juice drained off) reduced the salsa ( for the picky eater) and added shredded cheese the last 2 1/2 minutes. We served dinner with corn tortillas, sour cream, avocados sliced and limes... Can't thank you enough .. A healthy dinner and something we will definitely make again...

  9. naomik says:

    Made this last night for supper and it was a hit! I added some peppers and onions before cooking the turkey and added a little shredded cheese on top at the end. It was delicious! We usually do a weekly "breakfast for supper" day at our house and this recipe is definitely going to make the menu again! Thanks!

    Did you add the pepper and onion along with the salsa?

  13. Lauren Ann Boucher says:

    I made this as a dinner meal. I would add another cup of salsa and serve it over rice to give it more dinnertime substance. The flavor is good, and really, it couldn't be any easier. Service with a salad and pickled beets. Simple and inexpensive
