The method given is my mother's "one pan" approach, because she's only cooking up one pound of ground turkey, enough for 4 people. If you are increasing the recipe to serve more people, you may want to remove the vegetables after they've cooked and set them aside as you cook the turkey meat, or cook the meat and the vegetables in two separate skillets. http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/moms_ground_turkey_and_peppers/

Recipe Ingredients for Mom's Ground Turkey and Peppers

2 T Olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1 bell pepper (red or yellow preferred), chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Kosher salt
1 lb ground turkey, preferably ground turkey thighs
1 teaspoon chipotle powder or chili powder (or to taste)
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley or cilantro

Recipe Directions for Mom's Ground Turkey and Peppers

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the chopped onions and bell pepper and cook until onions and peppers are softened, a couple minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more.

  2. Push the vegetables to the edge of one side of the pan and position that side of the pan so that it is off the burner, away from the heat. The empty part of the pan should be right over the burner. Add one or two more tablespoons of oil to coat the empty part of the pan. Put crumpled chunks of ground turkey in the pan, sprinkle with salt and chipotle or chili powder.

  3. Cook the turkey without stirring until it is browned on one side, then turn the pieces over to brown the other side. Once the turkey is just cooked through, stir in the onions and peppers, and sprinkle with more salt and chili powder to taste. Remove from heat. Stir in fresh chopped parsley or cilantro.

  4. Serve alone, or with steamed rice or noodles.
