Ingredients

  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice (we used Uncle Ben's Instant Brown Rice)
  • 1 1/4 cups fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 cups no sugar added salsa, divided
  • 2 cups tomatoes, diced, divided
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup frozen or fresh corn kernels
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of black beans, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives or green onions

Instructions

  • Over medium heat, in a skillet, cook the onion and ground turkey. The turkey should be cooked until it's no longer pink. Drain off any fat, then push the turkey to one side of the skillet. Add the rice and toast for about 1 minute.
  • Add to the turkey and rice mixture: chicken broth, 1 cup salsa, 1 cup diced tomatoes, taco seasoning, corn, and the beans. Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Season with salt and pepper. If it starts to dry up, just add a little more broth. Turn off the burner.
  • Mix in the cheese. It will melt with the heat.
  • Serve in individual bowls and garnish with the remaining tomatoes, salsa, and chives. You can also garnish it with fresh avocado, and lettuce.
  • NOTE: If using long grain brown rice, it will need to be cooked in advance. Uncle Ben's 10 minute brown rice was used in this recipe.

Notes

FREEZING: Cook the rice dish and cool before adding to freezer safe dishes or Ziploc bags. Thaw the rice in the fridge before reheating. Also, add the cheese once the rice is hot, stir to melt, top with chives or green onions and serve.!
