It’s been awhile since I posted one of my recipes here on the blog so here it goes. It’s a good one people! 😉
Today I had planned on making a pasta dish with ground turkey but as soon as I got home, I really didn’t feel like eating anything with pasta. Instead, I came home wanting a delicious plate of rice and beans with a good seasoned meat dish but all I had on hand was a pound of ground turkey.
I asked myself, “What can I make with ground turkey that would go well with rice and beans?”
I was perplexed. I had no idea what to make. I was all out of ideas so I decided to go on Pinterest to get some ideas and I found something that looked so delicious but I knew I had to put my own spin on it.
I saw a Korean Rice Bowl that looked amazing!
I thought to myself, I can make this! But it would have to have a Puerto Rican twist to it so it can compliment the rice and beans nicely.
I decided to call it “Puerto Rican Turkey Hash”. I’m still not sure it sounds appetizing but I assure you it is.
Let me tell you it was DEE-LEE-CIOUS! My whole family loved it and it was quick and easy. I will definitely make this again.
Here’s a photo I took right before eating:
Puerto Rican Turkey Hash
A pound of ground Turkey
1 Large Potato cut into small pieces
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 TBSP of Homemade sofrito
1 Packet of Sazón Goya with Coriander & Annato
1 Packet of chicken seasoning
McCormick Cuban Seasoning (This is so good!)
2-cloves of fresh garlic
A Dash of Tabasco Sauce
A Dash of Sriracha (With the Rooster on the front!)
2 TBSP of Tomato Sauce
1/4 cup of Water
Preheat a pan on low heat. Add about a tablespoon of EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil) and cook the sofrito for a few minutes. Add the diced potatoes. Add the ground turkey and make sure you break up the meat so it isn’t in large chunks. Stir the meat while it cooks. Add the seasoning, fresh garlic, tomato sauce, hot sauces and water while the turkey is cooking and keep stirring so it doesn’t stick.
Cook the mixture for about 30 minutes or till the turkey is cooked well and potatoes are tender.
Last thing you do is add this over a nice bed of white rice with beans on the side and you’ve got yourself a wholesome dinner for the whole family.
Just so you know, I do not measure a thing when I cook. It’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that. You taste as you go along to get the best flavor. If you do not have all these ingredients on hand, just use what you have. I’m sure it will be equally delicious.
