Recipe by Cup_Cake_Chef
This is the perfect go-to recipe if you're looking for something healthy, qulick and filling. The turkey is a learner substitution for ground beef and the fact that there is very little added salt makes it a hearth healthier option. I usually serve this with shredded cheese, sour cream and cornbread on the side!

- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄2 small onion, chopped
