Spicy Ground Turkey, Pepper, & Cheese Bake

I am back (finally) with a new recipe and menu! This recipe is so easy and low carb. I have been eating less and less breads, and my meals are reflecting that. Not to worry, I will still have carb recipes for all the bread lovers of the world (which includes me hence having to cut back a little).

I also have a new menu for the week, which I promise I actually have time to post some of the recipes this week! We are finally getting settled in our new home, and it is a bit less hectic this week. Next week, however, I will be traveling back to Oklahoma to visit family and will try my very best to post at least once that week.

First thing first, here is the new menu:

  • Monday:stuffed chicken with spinach and feta
  • Tuesday:chili relleno casserole
  • Wednesday:zoodle chicken pesto
  • Thursday:burger bowls
  • Friday:chicken berry salad
  • Saturday:sausage, beans, and pepper skillet
  • Sunday:steak & tomato mozzarella salad

Now for the delicious recipe that is pictured.


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 small can of slice black olives
  • 1 cup shredded mexican cheese
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a skillet on medium-high heat cook ground turkey with all spices until cooked thoroughly.
  3. Spray a baking dish with extra virgin olive oil (I use the store brand cooking spray).
  4. Layer the finished ground turkey in the baking dish.
  5. On top of the ground turkey layer use 1/4 of the cheese.
  6. Next, layer the diced bell pepper and onion.
  7. Top the bell pepper and onions with the enchilada sauce.
  8. Top with cheese and sliced black olives.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.
