Turkey Taco Quinoa Skillet Instructions
Preheat a dash of olive oil in a large skilled. Add chopped bell pepper and onion to the skillet, letting it cook for about two minutes.
Add ground turkey to the skillet, mixing in your taco seasoning. Cook for another five minutes or longer until turkey is cooked through.
Once turkey is fully cooked, mix in the drained corn, drained black beans and quinoa. Stir well so all ingredients are magnificently mingled.
Add the water, stir again, then bring everything to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, place a lid on the skillet, and let everything continue to simmer for about 20 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the quinoa is fluffy and fully cooked.
When the skillet ingredients are fully cooked, turn off the heat, remove the lid and add more seasoning as desired. You may want to put another tablespoon of the taco seasoning into the mix, along with any salt and pepper.
The grand finale is adding the cheese, as much as you wish, sprinkling it atop the mixture. Put the lid back on the skillet and let is sit for about five minutes so the cheese can melt.
Serve with sliced jalapeno peppers and cilantro sprinkled on top, with a side of Beanfields Bean Chips.
