Taco salad....yessss!!! The thing I find important is to turn the heat on high, but keep stirring it and mashing it from the time its cold until it gets white. 'course turkey doesnt take long. This usually keeps the crumbles smaller which allows for more flavoring/spices/etc., to come along with the meat, important to me since we know the extra lean turkey is like cardboard as far as taste goes. If you like it in bigger crumbles dont mash up the meat early on. I use taco mix with a lot of chili powder and some olive oil to give it a nice texture and it also helps avoid sticking. Same approach for hot dog style chilli minus the taco seasoning of course.
That's a good point. For a long time, people just assumed that turkey was healthier, and ignored the macros. I've noticed that the gr. turkey in "tube" form (like sausage packaging) is usually very high in fat.
Mmm ground turkey... 2 recipes I love: ground turkey burger in a pan with a pc or 2 of bacon (stays jucier than the grill) and whatever cheese you like, on toast, a roll, pita or whatever works for you..
The secoind my girl recently came up with.. 2lbs ground lean turkey, 1 "2 alarm chili" kit, 4-8 oz canned tomato sauce (tutto rossi or whatever, just plain tomato sauce). And either canneloni or kidney beans. Brown turkey, add sauce, then spices and later beans. Drain some of grease/fat/juice before adding sauce, keep on the side to enhance flavor/moistness later if necessary. Once cooked, serve w/ or w/ouþ cheese on a roll or just plain, its great shit.. With the leftovers, ýou can make my new favorite that she just introduced me to.. "Juevos rancheros" - eggs (fried, scrambled, over easy/hard however you like) with some cheese if desired. Can be served on a high grain bread to make a sandwich, ahh I'm starving thinking about it!!
