Introduction

This recipe does not make the prettiest looking food but I eat it every week. I absolutely love it because it fills my belly. Depending on what else I have had during the day, I may add a half of an avocado and/or cheese to it. I've also had it with salsa.

Ingredients

    1 package 99% Fat Free Turkey Meat
    1/2 cup onion
    1 cup pepper
    3 garlic cloves
    1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (canned)
    1.5 cups cauliflower
    1/2 cup black beans (cooked)


Tips

This is my first time submitting this recipe. The cooking time is approximately. It could be between 20 and 30 minutes.


Directions

1. Sautee 1 package of turkey meat. After the meat has browned, add 1 cup of water and set to simmer for about 15 minutes. This will help break down the meat into smaller pieces.

2. In another pan, sautee (I use Pam, not oil) 1/2 cup onion until lightly golden and then add the chopped garlic cloves. After about a minute, add the cup of pepper and continue sautéing until the vegetables get soft. (Since I use Pam, I usually end up adding some water to water sautee the vegetables.) After the vegetables have softened, add the 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes. (I normally add diced tomatoes but I didn't have any on hand.)

3. Once the vegetables have blended together and the meat has broken down, add the vegetables to the meat and stir.

4. Add the taco seasoning and stir until all the taco seasoning is mixed through.

5. Add the cauliflower (I usually add cauliflower or broccoli. It depends which one I have on hand or left over from earlier in the week.)

6. Add the black beans.

Once everything is heated through, its ready to serve.

Depending on what I have had during the day, I may or may not add salsa, cheese and/or a half of an avocado. If you do add extra, be sure to account for the extras in the nutritional data.
