My freezer is FULL of butterball ground turkey, and chicken tenderloin strips (unbreaded.) I've got a large can of pinto beans, and a bag of dried great northern beans. I need to come up with an idea to make for dinner.
I have more than that, but I'm not sure what to make. I've got cayenne pepper.... and cilantro... could I make a white chili with the ground turkey and cayenne and then add the pinto beans at the end?
Or should I make some sort of chicken and beans dish? I don't know what to do, I've never really cooked with beans before nor have I ever really eaten them. I do know that I like them now, though. I made chili with red beans right before I came down with a stomach virus. I've got a tomato and some onion, some mozarella cheese, maybe I could make turkey meatballs and make the tomato and onion into a sauce 'cause I've got basil & oregano & garlic... and top it with shredded mozarella. But I like to have my meatballs with pasta, I'm not so crazy about them plain.
I don't know what to do with ground turkey other than make turkey burgers, and BF won't eat those without rolls. I used to use turkey to make hamburger helper but we're not eating any of that crap anymore. Also used it in tacos before... I use it in everything you use ground beef in ... but without the other stuff, I've got to come up with a way to make a meal out of it. Any ideas? I'm up with insomnia as I always am and I thought I'd ask.
