Minute Meals: Drunkin’ Ground Turkey

Drunkin’ ground turkey is an easy-to-make, delicious dish. I often make a “vat” of it at the beginning of the week and use it to put together a variety of meals, on-the-go, for the rest of the week. Add it to a salad, mix it in tomato soup or assemble these simple street tacos. Yum!  

Drunkin’ Ground Turkey

1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves (I love the frozen cubes from Trader Joe’s)
1 red pepper, chopped
¼ tsp salt
1 pkg ground turkey (vegetarians, substitute 1 package of tofu)
½ c white wine or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon to 1/4 cup taco seasoning (depending on how spicy you like it)
1/4 c fresh parsley, chopped

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes. Add white wine, red pepper and salt and cook until red pepper is tender.  Add ground turkey, white wine, parsley and taco seasoning and cook until meat is cooked all the way through.
