Tex Mex Turkey “Meatloaf”

Hi Friends!  If you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE ground turkey!  This is my go-to for everything.  I always have several pounds of it in my freezer!  It’s easy to cook, you can season it so many different ways, and it’s easy to add to anything!  This week I decided that I wanted to spice it up a little bit.  I had a meatloaf in my mind, but when I got to looking at recipes it wasn’t really what I wanted.  So, I just made it how I wanted and crossed my fingers that it would come out okay.  And it did!  It was delicious and I will definitely be making it again.  

It’s really simple, with minimal ingredients, and it tastes great!  

I used one pound of ground turkey, half of a yellow onion diced, diced green, red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, one egg, and lots of spices.  

I put everything in a bowl and mixed it together until it was combined.  I used probably two cups of diced peppers. But you can use as much or as little as you want.  

Ground turkey needs a lot of seasoning.  Once you think you’ve put enough on there, add some more!  I really don’t think you can put too much seasoning on it.  I used garlic powder, Lawry’s Seasoning Salt, Cavendars, paprika, and a little bit of chili powder.  (Another spice I like to use on ground turkey is Mrs. Dash Southwestern)

After I mixed it all together, I put it into a baking dish and pressed it in there so it all fit.  I also added more seasoning to the top.  

Then I baked it at 350 for 35 minutes.  

Once it came out of the oven, I checked to make sure that it was done all the way through and then I let it sit for about 5 minutes.  Then I drained off some of the liquid before I cut up.
