I haven’t been to a Pampered Chef party in some time because I am no cook. I wish I was more culinarily inclined, but I digress. I was so pleasantly surprised and excited to try the Chicken Fajita Bites the hostess created at my neighbor’s house this week. If I get excited about a meal it must be quick and easy, and usually has a Mexican flair (my fave)! I think using the bell pepper quarters in place of chips or tortillas is sheer genius. These were presented as an appetizer, but I recreated them today for lunch with items I had on hand, and they were perfect. The original recipe has an accompanying video, and uses several ingredients (and of course kitchen tools) that I did not. However, it may inspire you to find your own twist on this great little recipe!
Clean Mexican Turkey Boats (changed the name for dramatic effect, since I have a youngster gracing my table)
- 1 lb extra lean ground turkey (I intend to try the chicken next)
- 4 bell peppers, yellow and red, cleaned and sliced into wedges
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 tbl olive oil
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin (I would use more if it was just for me)
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2/3 cup fat free plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup salad greens to garnish
Saute the garlic with the olive oil in a skillet approx. 1 minute. Add turkey and spices. Once the turkey is cooked, remove from heat. Add the greek yogurt and stir. Fill bell pepper wedges and serve with salad greens. Deelish!
