Lean ground turkey is a fabulous substitute in almost any ground beef dish. Not only does this meal rank high for health and nutrition, it can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1 large chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 large red or green sweet pepper, finely diced
1 can (15 ounce) corn, with liquid (no added sugar)
1 can (16 ounce) diced tomatoes, with liquid
1 Tablespoon chili powder
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
4 whole-wheat sandwich buns or English muffins
In a skillet over medium heat, brown the turkey and drain fat, if any. Add the onion, garlic and red or green pepper. Saute about 5 minutes, until vegetables are soft.
Stir in corn with its own liquid, along with the tomatoes and their liquid, chili powder and black pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Serve on buns or muffins.
