  1. These were soooo good, fast, and easy! My DH loved them! We used half an onion diced, 2 garlic gloves, 1 dried jalapeno along with 1 fresh jalapeno, and a tsp cumin. Used tomatoes with green chilies (canned) and plain frozen corn. Browned the meat, threw in the onions and garlic, added the rest! Took just a few minutes! Served on tortillas with fat-free sour cream, lettuce, black olives, and cheese. THANK YOU FOR THIS EASY & HEALTHY RECIPE!
  2. Deelish! My husband and I have been trying to eat more ground turkey and this recipe makes it easy. I threw in some pickled jalapenos and added some cheese to mine. Tasty, easy to put together and makes a lot. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!
  3. Excellent and Quick for busy people like me!!! I sauted some onion and garlic with the turkey. Adding a little cumin, salt and pepper for taste to the meat gave it a yummy little punch (don't wait for meat to be fully cook-you want it infused with the flavors). Half way through browning the turkey, I added a few jalapeno slices diced up. I also added in some homemade pizza sauce (about 4 tbs-yummy!). Everything else I followed to a T and it turned out wonderful, as usual. This is a very fun recipe because you can almost do anything you want and it will turn out perfect. Sour Cream, Black olives, tomatoes, cheese, etc. go well on top. Thanks and Thanks again!!

My name is Sara. I live in Portland, OR and I work at a retirement community in the Wellness department. I love to cook! I occasionally do cooking demonstrations at work and typically have over 40 people! This is a lot considering I have no professional training, and I never really cooked at all until a few years after high school. I try to focus on cooking healthy foods, though I believe if you're going to indulge you might as well go all the way (case in point: Black Forest Cake)! I'm always looking for new and unusual recipes and my main source is the net, currently 'zaar. I've been more successful here than anywhere else! I also subscribe to Light & Tasty (part of Taste of Home) and I highly recommend that magazine, it really proves that you can eat healthy and enjoy it. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""><img src="">
