Left over Mexican mixup 

Okay y’all! Have I got a darn good and easy meal for ya to try! 

First off, to make this recipe go a bit easier, I would recommend having about 3 cups of left over Gallo pinto. I let mine set in the fridge for about 3 days to let the flavor soak into the rice. 

Here it is! Let me know what you think! 

What you will need: 

1 yellow onion, diced

3 Tbsp coconut or canola oil

1 Lb. Ground Turkey 

1 Tsp. Chili Powder

2 Tbsp. Cumin

1 Tbsp. Cayenne Pepper

3 cups Gallo Pinto

1-2 cups fresh Spinach

1 can of corn, drained

16 oz. of your favorite salsa

2 cups shredded cheese


In a large skillet (I used a Wok) heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions. 

Cook until translucent. Add ground turkey, cook until brown. 

Do not drain. Add seasonings. Stir. 

Add spinach, corn, and Gallo pinto. 

Stir. Cook spinach down. 

Add salsa. Stir. 

Lower heat to medium. Top with cheese and melt! 

That is it folks! Easy-peasy! Give it a try and let me now what you think. Remember all seasonings can be reduced or added to depending on how spicy you like your food. 

Until next time,
