I have two big milestones coming up this October … my 30th birthday and my five-year wedding anniversary. Naturally, I am trying to slim down for both.
In search of low-calorie/big-flavor recipes, I found a Weight Watchers recipe for Turkey Joes (think sloppy Joe’s with turkey instead of beef).
Here is the recipe. Enjoy.
|1 pound(s) lean ground turkey|
|1/2 medium bell pepper(s), chopped|
|1/2 medium sweet red pepper(s), chopped|
|1/2 medium onion(s), chopped|
|1/8 tsp cayenne pepper|
|1 cup(s) barbecue sauce|
|4 medium mixed-grain hamburger roll(s), sliced in half|
- Brown turkey in a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain off liquid. Add peppers and onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
- Add barbecue sauce and cayenne pepper; heat thoroughly, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes.
- Top bottom half of buns with turkey mixture; cover with top half of bun and serve.
Serves 4. 6 Weight Watchers points per serving. 15 minutes prep time.
