2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper lengthwise into ¼-inch-wide strips, then crosswise into ¼-inch pieces.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Trim the ends and cut the potato in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, then crosswise into ½-inch cubes.
  • If using, coarsely chop the jalapeños. Wash your hands after handling.


Prep and brown the turkey

  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a medium [large] frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the turkey and spice blend, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until the turkey is lightly browned but not yet cooked through and the spice blend is fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.


Cook the turkey and sweet potato skillet

In the same pan used for the turkey, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the sweet potato and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the turkey and as many jalapeños as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the turkey and sweet potato skillet cooks, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes

  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ½-inch pieces. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the lime into wedges. [Cut 1 lime into wedges. Save the remaining lime.]


Transfer the turkey and sweet potato skillet to the table and garnish with the avocado and olives. Serve with the lime wedges.
