NWR: ground turkey recipe?

I don't want to make meatloaf and I don't want meatballs/spaghetti since we just had those.  What other fun and tasty things can I do with ground turkey?  that's what I defrosted and now I'm responsible for dinner!!!!

    Why not make tacos? I bet it would be a fun meal for Brandon too with all the extras you can top it with.

    I could to turkey burgers - but I never find a turkey burger that I like. I'm obviously just not seasoning them right.... tacos might be good - i'll have to run to the store and get the stuff for them. stuffed peppers sounds awesome, but i'm clueless as to how to make them, i'm sure I can google it tho.

    Stuffed peppers do sound good. You may have to share the recipe, Erika.

    I also use turkey in this recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/uptown-down-home-chili-recipe/index.html and sub kidney beans for the black beans.

    With that chili, I also mix it into mac & cheese, omitting the cheese & final bit of onion in the chili recipe.

    I was also going to suggest tacos. If you have biscuit mix or a tube of pre-cut biscuits at home, you can put the biscuits in a cupcake pan, add the cooked and seasoned turkey to each cup, bake for the time on the biscuit instructions, and then add the shredded cheese a couple minutes before you take them out. Or you could make a shepherd's pie.

    cook the beef in a pan just like you would tacos (you may wantto season to taste).pre-heat oven at 350.  chop bite pieces of zuchini, squash (really whatever you like) and grape tomatoes.  add cook turkey to mixture and stuff peppers.  you can also add cheese~ I do feta when i make mine, but instead of ground turkey i add a little rice and do veggie only.  cook for about 15-20 minutes.  you can also serve this over rice instead of stuffing the pepper with rice.

    No no, the original chili recipe I gave has cheese & onion as a topping. So I make regular mac & cheese, omit the extra cheese & onion (from the chili recipe) and mix the chili into the mac & cheese.

    Turkey chilli is my favorite, and it comes out fantastic. I season the ground turkey with Sazón, ground cumin, Adobo, salt - mix mix mix and then cook as usual. Drain the liquid, *then* comes the fun part of the Taco Bell seasoning packet. I do not enjoy spicy food but this gives it that extra punch of flavor. When that's all simmering I add sweet corn niblets and garbanzo beans (chick peas some may call it) for about 15 mins on low heat. Over white rice? Delish.

    Ooh Erika I didn't see your recipe above and it sounds awesome. I am going to try yours--and the feta sounds like it would be really good.

    I've also made stuffed peppers many times with turkey and I recently made sloppy joe's with it. The recipe is even made for using turkey (and it's WW!):http://tinyurl.com/yfvo5vp
