Paleo Turkey Hash


I felt I had to throw a turkey recipe into the mix while posting and sharing Thanksgiving dishes; while I'm offering the bird, I can't promise any of the other flavors and textures are traditional! This quickie has much more of a Tex-Mex feel, and as such is a lot brighter and zippier than the typical holiday fare.

I adapted the recipe from Guy Fieri, adding some more seasoning and avocado and cilantro for color and flavor. While I did use organic red potatoes here, you could also use white sweet potatoes for the base. This would also taste delicious made with either ground chicken or beef!

Paleo Turkey Hash
adapted from Guy Fieri

1/4 cup olive oil, divided
1 large diced red onion
1 red bell pepper, julienne
1 green bell pepper, julienne
2 jalapenos, diced, and seeded
2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 pounds organic red or white sweet potatoes, sliced thin
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 lime, juiced
1 medium ripe avocado, diced
minced cilantro, to garnish

In medium saute pan, add 1/2 of olive oil, onions, peppers and saute until translucent. Add turkey and brown on all sides. Season with salt, garlic powder and pepper.

In a separate pan, add remaining oil and fry potatoes until crispy (I actually used two separate skillets for this).

On a serving plate layer the turkey mixture on top of the crispy potatoes.

Top with diced Roma tomatoes, diced avocado and fresh squeezed lime juice. Garnish with minced cilantro.
