You can make chili with ground turkey. Just find any chili recipe and sub the turkey for beef.

These are all good ideas. Turkey burgers are good too and casseroles. Just look up hamburger recipes and substitute turkey.

Spaghetti and turkey meatballs

Turkey burgers (i add chopped spinach, onions, or mashrooms to mine)

Stuffed peppers

Stuffed zuchini boats

I don’t like red meat ( I know, Im weird) so I use ground turkey all the time.

Ground turkey is great in taco like dishes… tacos, taco salads, burritos, nachos… Super yummy!

I wish Fiance wanted to eat ground turkey more!!  I could eat it every day and he’s maxed out!

I do a veggie stir-fry kind of thing – saute onions and garlic – add the ground turkey – and then throw in whatever veggies I have around (carrots, squash, mushrooms, spinach), etc.  I spice it up with either fresh herbs (rosemary, basil) and throw in some red pepper flakes, if I want a little kick.

I use it for tacos, and it is also really good for quesadillas. Cook the meat and mix it with lots of onion, peppers, green chillis, corn, and beans. use it as quesadilla filling with a little cheese. mm.

Oh boy my Fiance is a picky eater too.  I just switched him off red meat to ground turkey.  He actually likes it better.  Anything you would make with ground beef you can put turkey in.  Chili, spagetti, tacos.  Meatloaf is great with turkey.  Also I really enjoy stuffed bell peppers.  I make it with brown rice, ground turkey, and some tomato sauce.  Mix it all up, stuff it in, and bake with some cheese on top.  (check online for a recipe because you must cook the peppers first but it is all pretty darn easy).  Lasagna can be made with turkey.  I really just go back and say just anything that has beef in it you can use turkey.  One idea is to check out weight watchers recipes because eveeryone on there uses turkey instead of beef.

Tacos and chili.  We NEVER buy ground beef.  Try recipes.com for ideas.  You can search on ground turkey OR ground beef.

Tambor de Papa. Or Mashed Potatoes Drum.

Basically you cook ground turkey and mashed potatoes. Then in an oven-safe bowl you layer mashed potatoes, turkey, and grated cheese. And pop in the oven (or microwave) for like 15 minutes.
