South-of-the Border Turkey Dinner

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag Minute Steamers Brown Rice
  • 1 pound ground turkey, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 can (11 ounces) southwestern corn blend
  • 1 cup prepared salsa
Directions:
  • Prepare rice according to package directions.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine turkey, corn and salsa.
  • Cook on HIGH 2 minutes.
  • Stir in rice.
Tips:
  • Add 1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese.
  • Use as filling in tortillas and top with shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes.
  • Roll into burrito-sized tortillas and serve with sour cream.




What we thought: We tried the Minute Steamers Mac & Cheese. I fixed it as a side dish to go along with supper one night. Just a simple meat & veggies kind of night. It needed a little spicing up. The mac & cheese was so easy to make. I just put the bag straight from the freezer to the microwave. It only takes a few minutes and you have a fresh, hot side dish. We thought the mac & cheese was pretty good. Not the best mac & cheese I've had, but I'd rate it on the better end. It's something that we would definitely eat again.

The only draw back for us was the size. There really wasn't a lot in the bag. I would say it was about 2 adult size portions. We split it between 2 adults and 1 child (who eats like an adult), and it was a pretty small portion for each of us.

I also got a bag of the Fried Rice, but haven't had a chance to try it yet. It looks yummy. I could make it as a dinner side or maybe a quick, easy lunch for myself one day.

Where to buy: I had a hard time finding the Minute Steamers in my local grocery stores, but was able to get it at Walmart. It is available in these varieties now.


Prize: One winner will receive an assortment of  Minute Rice items such as a kitchen timer, reusable grocery tote, and potholders.

Giveaway: This giveaway is open until 12:01am EST on 2/19/13. It is open to US residents only.Please enter in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
