If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all. –Michelangelo

I love this recipe.  It’s so easy and you can almost make it faster than you can set the table.

Serves 6

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (or beef)
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Old El Paso Enchilada sauce
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 16 oz can Pillsbury Grand biscuits 
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Green onions
  • Sour cream
  • Black olives
  • 1 can of black beans, drained
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained
  • 1 4 oz. can chopped mild chilies (I like chilies so I doubled the amount)
  • optional: serve with sour cream and Scoop style Fritos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef and drain if needed. Mix in a can of enchilada sauce and tomato sauce. Cut the refrigerated biscuits into fourths and stir them in the meat mixture.  Add chilies, drained can of kidney beans and drained can of corn.  Pour it all in a greased casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until biscuits are done.  Take out of oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I got this recipe from my friend Julie.

2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil  (I used about a Tablespoon of coconut oil instead)
1 c. finely chopped onion
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/4 tsp. salt (I didn’t use any salt)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp garlic salt (I sprinkled about a Tablespoon of garlic powder instead of salt over the meat)
1 12 oz bag of broccoli slaw (I ended up using 2 bags)
1 small drained water chestnuts (I didn’t use them)
1/2 c. Teriyaki sauce (I used a bottle of Teriyaki Baste and Glaze sauce from Smith’s)
1 tsp. sesame oil (optional)
Approx. 15 butter lettuce leaves
I bought some cashews and added those at the end

1) place oil into large 5 qt. skillet or other large pan over medium heat. When hot, add onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften.  Add ground turkey, salt, pepper and garlic salt.  Brown and crumble until cooked through.

2)  When turkey is cooked, stir in broccoli slaw, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce and sesame oil.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until heated through. (At this point I added some whole cashews that I bought from Costco that are high quality).
