I am a total foodie and I love every type of cuisine. The weirder the combinations, the better!! I like my food to be unique and fun, just like me! When I cook, I experiment with many different cultural cooking methods. Thai, Indian, Chinese, Italian etc.
Where did I learn to cook? People ask me this all the time. I never really learned to cook so much as I am learning everyday. I have always loved food and cooking. When you really really love something, you tend to be good at it.
My cooking style is simple. I experiment and I copy. When someone serves me a meal and I enjoy it, I take notice of the flavors and ingredients, ask questions and try to create something similar on my own. This dish is so different and I love all the fresh herbs and spices in it. I must admit I am going through a bit of a ground turkey phase…I love that it is so lean and still so tasty. I enjoy the texture of ground turkey and I love how easily you can whip up an impressive meal with it.
I have been obsessed for a while with this sexy chili-lime turkey recipe that I just sort of made up. I make it a little different everytime, but this is my basic recipe. I hope you all enjoy this spicy, refreshing and comforting meal as much as I do!! Please comment below with your favorite ground turkey recipes and if you try this one, let me know what you think! Happy cooking 🙂
