Chili Spiced Turkey

Today I’m continuing with my experiment of trying to make plain turkey a little more exciting. I love adding vegetables into this too because it’s a great way to sneak more veggies into my diet. This is a great option to prep ahead for the week too and makes a perfect complete meal.

Sweet & Spicy Turkey

As I’ve been increasing my training, my diet has been all about the protein. Only problem is, I am not a huge meat eater, and try to limit my dairy consumption so I am constantly trying to come up with ways to make turkey and chicken more exciting. This recipe was one of my favorites so far! It makes the extra lean turkey a little less dry and gives it a ton of flavor. These would be great in lettuce wraps and paired well with steamed snap peas!
