MEXICAN SPICED TURKEY WITH RICE


COOKBOOK: Super Food Ideas - June 2011


A very simple and easy Mexican dish to make. Turkey in Mexico is somewhat a rare meat to eat and not frequently introduced in their dishes. It has only recently been introduced in some of the Mexican/American restaurants to keep within the tradition of eating this delicacy on certain American holidays. I love turkey and after making this dish I’d say it is a great substitute to beef. Turkey is high in protein, vitamin B, selenium, zinc & phosphorus. It’s a white meat that can resemble chicken but has less saturated fats.


It’s a great flavoursome dish that everyone will just love


Hope you enjoy
