    It was good, not great

    this is a good base for a tasty meal but there needs to be several add-ins. I started by adding mushrooms and just a few pices of celery and halfing sweet peppers & onions. The chili powder adds a nice kick but no real taste - added about 2 tsp of cajun seasoning (no need for added salt now). Then added a few fresh celery leaves to the parsley. Surprisingly, it went well with brown basmati rice but i'd highly recommend mashed potatoes with gravy since the dish is pretty dry.

    Good, easy, & quick meal when served with rice. I added a small amount of turkey broth to moisten the ground turkey/rice combo.

    especially good when you add paprika and some cheyenne at the same time as the chipotle! mix in some precooked sliced potatoes during the cooking and drizzle a little soy sauce before eating. wonderful! meal ends with well cleared plates and family asking when you intend on making more.

    it turned out really good. I put both the chili powder and chipotle season for double flavor. Added some rice and wrapped it in a tortilla. Soo good😫

    My whole family liked it a lot! I paired it with noodles tossed in butter. The only thing missing here was the flavor. I will have to play around with the seasonings next time.

    Turned out great! I used chorizo seasoned ground turkey and the flavors were great! We ate it with cilantro lime rice. Will make this again!

    The flavor was amazing! The ground turkey with seasonings and veggies seemed a bit dry so we drizzled BBQ sauce on mine and hot sauce on another plate. This would taste delicious in a spaghetti sauce or a tortilla wrap. Going to try that next time.

    Delicious- I added a bit extra chipotle pepper, although spicy! Then I served it over brown rice and added avocado and cheddar on top! My son and I both loved it!
