Rachel Ray to the rescue! A year ago we started changing our diet to deal with cholesterol and high blood pressure and I started looking for a tasty recipe for ground turkey breast. I found it in her Just in Time cookbook. I had to make my own variation on it of course. Rachel’s recipe calls for tomatillos but since I live in the Midwest, good tomatillos can be hard to find in the winter. So last fall I froze up a bunch of green tomatoes. I know it’s a very different flavor but the tartness seems to work.
Here’s my version. It’s a little shorter in time.
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 c. green tomatoes
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
Saute onions in olive oil. Brown ground turkey. Add green pepper, jalapenos and green tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook through. Serve on hamburger buns with slices of avocado.
