Ground Turkey Fajitas
I was desperate for some new healthy recipes to add to our weekday dinners. A little googling brought me to this recipe from Cooks.com I altered it just a bit and ended up with a flavorful meal with zero guilt! The recipe below is for 2 servings, so feel free to alter the amounts to suit your family size!
What You’ll Need:
- 8oz lean ground turkey
- Splash of vegetable oil
- 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1/4 green pepper, chopped
- 4oz white mushrooms, chopped
- 7oz diced tomatoes, canned (with sauce)
- Salt, pepper, and garlic powder
- Worcestershire sauce
- Ground Parmesan cheese (just a sprinkle)
What You’ll Do:
In a large skillet, brown the turkey in just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. When turkey is almost fully-cooked, add onions and celery and cook until soft. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add mushrooms and green pepper and continue to cook. When veggies are soft, add tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce and cook an additional 2-3 minutes to incorporate flavors. Serve with warm corn tortillas and sprinkle with a small amount of parmesan cheese.

Matt can have more calories per day than I can, so he ate a couple of extra tortillas with the yummy turkey mixture inside. That’s not the only way to eat this, however..
I ate mine like this – in a bowl with a spoon and a single tortilla on the side. Yum yum!
