This twist on the Latin American staple is made healthier with lean ground turkey and crisp apples. It doubles well. Try tucking it into whole-wheat tortillas or serve over instant brown rice for a quick and healthy supper.

"Yum. I also grew up with this dish born and raised in California and always loved it spicy and tangy. Add some chopped de-veined jalapeno, finish it with some cilantro and a squirt of lime juice. YUM! "

Soooooooo good!!

I make 6 servings of this recipe and have it for lunch at work the entire week. I've just changed my diet to start eating healthier and low calorie and this works well. It's quick and easy. I just love it! Thanks eating well

The mixture of flavors
Surprisingly Good :)

I was very skeptical of this recipe especially with the apple but tried it and was pleasantly surprised. It was very tasty! I doubled the recipe (exceptions- for the oil left it as is, no cloves since I didn't have cloves, used Gala apples and added some red pepper flakes bc I love spicy food ).

Easy to make
Awful, just plain awful

I'm a very good cook and can usually salvage dishes that miss the mark. There was nothing that could save this mess. The flavors were battling each other and no one came out a winner.

fiber for the disposal

Added blue cheese on top. Soo delicious,


I served this over quinoa since my husband is on a high protein diet. I used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh and added a little more Worcestershire sauce. Also, I used Pink Lady apples and didn't peel them since there are so many nutrients in the skin. It was a great mix of sweet and spicy; both my husband and I loved it and will definitely make it again.
