Two words … Burning Deliciousness. I had plans to make Tosca Reno’s Brown Rice Turkey Meatloaf for dinner, but my taste buds were craving some serious flava flave.
So, I decided to play with the recipe and add in some GIN flavor – salsa, jalapeno and chili powder. And thank heavens it was absolutely delish … the boy had three servings, which is what I call a win.
If you want a less spicy version, cut back on the chili powder or jalapeno.
1 lb Lean ground turkey
1 cup Cooked brown rice
1/2 cup part-skim Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
