1/2 cup Red Peppers (Sliced,diced whichever you prefer)

1 TBSP Garlic Powder

1 TSP Cayenne Pepper

1 TSP Salt

1 TBSP Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS:
1. Use a large skillet that has a lid.

2. Turn heat on stove to Medium Heat.

3. Add Turkey,Onions,Pepper,Salt,Garlic Powder,Cayenne,Hot Sauce.
Cook uncovered Until Turkey is cooked through (no pink).

5. Cover with Lid and cook until Rice has cooked and is plump and soft and the Juice has absorbed into the meat & rice.

This dish is spicy for some but to me I find it mild. I am a lover of spice though so experiment with the spices if you don't care for hot.
I hope that you enjoy your meal. My kids loved it as well as my husband and myself.
