Some cooks worry that using ground turkey will create dry, tough burgers or meat loaves, but that isn't the case. If you've ever swapped lean ground turkey in for ground beef in a recipe, you might've gotten off on the wrong foot by using spices that didn't complement the meat's natural flavors. Our Editors have selected the very best lean ground turkey recipes so that you can enjoy a hearty dinner tonight without any of the guilt.
Turkey Mole Soup
Mole (MOH-lay) is a rich, spicy, and slightly sweet sauce that is often served with poultry in many Mexican dishes. In this recipe it adds depth to a simple soup, and it can be found in the Hispanic ingredients section in your supermarket. Slowly cooked in a dutch oven, ground turkey, tomatoes, black beans, chiles, raisins, and spices come together for a flavorful soup that's anything but boring. It's not too heavy or thick like a chili, but doesn't leave you hungry and unsatisfied like a thin, broth-based soup. Freeze your leftovers or serve them over a bed of grains for tomorrow's lunch.
