I tried this dish because I had ground turkey meat in the freezer, then I browsed through the Whole Foods recipes and came up with my own (what I had to work with) version of it. Ryder did 80% of the cooking.
Kristy's Variation of Mexican Taco Stew
1/2 lb ground turkey meat
1/2 large onion
1 TBS olive oil
fresh thyme ( from my herb garden ☺ )
1 cup Herdez casera mild salsa
1 cup frozen white shoepeg corn
1 16 oz can chicken broth
chop the onions and then start to sauté
add a bit of olive oil & kosher salt
in separate pot, make the barley according to instructions
I made 1 cup barley/ 2 cups water & added 1 TBS chicken bouillon to water
in another pot steam the baby carrots with a TBS butter & touch of water & salt
add the ground turkey to the onions and brown with salt & garlic seasoning
add the salsa & let it thicken slightly
then, add the remainder of the ingredients up to chicken broth
cover & turn heat up a bit
let simmer until the barley is ready
serve with the baby carrots
This by FAR exceeded yesterday's dinner. I felt great after eating it. And, it was loaded with flavor. I highly recommend. The kids LOVED it too.
I just had yesterday's dinner leftovers for lunch & it is AMAZING served cold with Parmesan. Way better. So it's basically a pasta salad dish in the end.
I just discovered the "Whole Foods App". Then, I decided to browse on their web-site as well. Looks like I'll not have to look elsewhere. They have like 1,780 recipes all of which look delicious. Wow, I'm so new to all of this researching. There is such a vast world of possibilities out there. I would never have to repeat a meal again in my lifetime. Ha ha. Although I'm sure I will want to.
