I always seem to stock up on ground turkey because it makes easy meals during the week. This week I decided to make it a topping for baked potatoes! I deem this man-friendly as well since it is a meat and potatoes dish. I don’t normally eat that many white baked potatoes because I just prefer the taste of sweet potatoes.
We often forget that white potatoes have good nutrition as well. If you want to get the full nutrition benefits, make sure to eat the skin as well. The skin is the part that has more of the vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Ingredients in Recipe: For this ground turkey potato topping recipe I used ground turkey (a little more than 1 lb.), 1 can Rotel, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 medium onion, plenty of chili powder, oregano, chipotle powder, cumin, garlic powder, and seasoned with salt and pepper. All you have to do is cook all these ingredients together for about 10 minutes or so, and it is done! Before you start cooking, you can heat the potatoes in the oven (or toaster oven) for about 30 minutes.
It turned out really well. But, you can’t really go wrong when you add a spoonful of sour cream as well 🙂 I was going for more of a chili topping while still keeping it healthier. I even used it the next day to eat on top of a salad–like a taco salad!
