Ground Turkey ideas

Does anyone have any ideas for using ground turkey? I do use it to make burgers and stuffed bell peppers. Just looking for other ideas. Thanks in advance for your input.

  1. Chili...use pinto beans and mexican tomatoes with an onion and garlic.

    1. Ma po tofu...in case you are unfamiliar with the dish, it uses 1/4 pound of ground pork or turkey and then a package of tofu but it is SO delicious!

      How about turkey n' bean burritos? I've switched out to ground turkey for our burritos for a few years now...if you season the ground turkey, it will have some flavor.

      1. re: Val

        I was also going to suggest ma po tofu. What we had for dinner tonight. Yum. Also: Lettuce wraps. Chili. Tacos. I've subbed it for almost any place I would normally use gr. beef or pork.

      2. it's really good in american chop suey too or turkey meatloaf

        1. Bar B Q Turkey meatloaf. Process onions, garlic and red peppers. Mix into ground turkey along with a little bar b q sauce and bread crumbs. Form into individual loafs and top with a little more bar b q sauce bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. The veggies make it very moist.

          1. Sloppy joes, Chili, spaghetti sauce, lasagna, taco filling...
