Tonight is our monthly Pot Luck Supper at church....
or is is a Covered Dish Supper?
I decided about a week ago to make something warm and cozy because it's been so gray and drizzly outside. Well, wouldn't you know it, today is a pretty and warm day. Oh well. I'll still make what I set out to do.
I found this on the Justapinch.com Web site. Have you ever been over there? It's really good. A woman named Teresa Leroux from Gatesville, TX submitted this recipe. I, of course, changed it to fit what I like.
What you need:
1 package of ground turkey, browned
1 onion, chopped
1 can green beans, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can sliced potatoes, drained. (I think next time I will dice my own potatoes).
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes, not drained
1 can pinto beans (I'll use two next time, I like beans)
1 bag of minute rice
3 cups water
Sprinkle top with garlic powder and chili powder
3/4 bottle BBQ sauce
And if you like things hot, you can add Rotel tomatoes or red pepper flakes. But since I'm making this for a group, I kept it tame.
Handy dandy Crock-pot and a non-stick frying pan
Brown your turkey (you could use beef too, I suppose).
Some people may like to add their onions to the meat, but I put mine in the Crock-pot with the rest of the veggies. Then, just start dumping all the ingredients in and sprinkle top with spices.
Mix it all up.
I started to make mine at noon and needed it to be done by 5 p.m., so I put it on High.
I'll serve these with rolls, but I think tortilla chips or Fritos would be tasty too.
