After reading many of the other reviews(thank you all) I decided to season my ground turkey with salt, pepper and garlic powder while browning. I only had diced tomatoes with green peppers and onions so I used that (so it wasn't spicy at all) and also added a little cumin,chili powder and season all as it simmered to be sure that it didn't turn out bland. As stated by another reviewer this recipe is a great base and does have potential but you have to spice it up to make it great and trust me with the added spices/seasonings it is a GREAT dish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooking for one is a challenge, and you don't want to eat something day after day. Cooking for one is a challenge, and you don't want to eat something day after day. This has small amount and can be reheated inside a flour tortilla or put inside corn tortillas and topped with salsa and/or cheese and baked. You can also use fajita beef or chicken strips or ground round rather than turkey. It can also be used as a topping over a hand-full of corn or tortilla chips in a bowl. Top with sour cream and green onions. This is an extremely adaptable, inexpensive recipe.

I didnt have kidney beans on hand for this so I just used a can of Bushes chili beans and made it in my rice cooker. Added some cummin and chili pepper to the turkey as it browned.I also served w/ Tortilla chips. Will make again when it is cold as a good warm meal.

I also love that it's cheap, makes a lot, and uses things you already have in your pantry. This has become a staple in my home. Also, I usually don't buy monterey jack cheese, but I have used mozzarella or cheddar and both have been wonderful.

As suggested by some of the comments, I used black beans, corn, cumin and salsa as substitutes in this recipe. My family and I thought it had great flavor--and was quick, easy, economical and has lots of protein! I'm going to try it again this evening with pinto beans instead.

I modified it to meet the ingredients that I had available, white kidneys instead of red,salsa instead of canned toatoes. And I added corn! The corn compensated for fewer tomatoes, and the salsa added great flavor. There were no leftovers and they still wanted more!

I made some changes to spice it up a bit. I added a packet of taco seasoning, used black beans instead of kidney beans and squeezed some fresh lime juice on before serving. Family LOVED it!
