I made this using 1 lb. of ground turkey, and while it was delicious, I cannot imagine that it would have had enough meat if I had only used 1/2 lb. as the recipe actually used. I really loved it, but DH only thought it was 3 star, so I'm giving it 4. If I do use only 1/2 lb. meat, I will add some kidney or pinto beans. Thanks for posting.
