i use it all the time for tacos, manwhich, stuffed peppers, basically anywhere i woulda used ground beef. are you using ground turkey or the ground turkey breast? they taste basically the same just the breast is whiter when cooked.

X2 on both of those. I also use it in my spaghetti sauce.

You might try this one sometime:
Brown 1/2 or 1 lb of ground turkey. Drain and mix in some good bbq sauce. Set aside.
Take a muffin tin and line the cups with a package of ready to cook biscuits. I normally use Pillsbury grands or flaky layers. Push them into the cups, basically forming a bowl shape with the dough. Fill the dough cups with the turkey bbq mix, then top with cheese of choice. Bake per instructions on the biscuit package. Dad always called them bbq cups. I call them good eats...

correct me if im wrong but i was watching a show on tv and they said that the extra lean ground beef is pretty much the same fat content as ground turkey (sometimes less depending on which type of turkey).

Actually, it's less!
I use 4% beef instead of ground turkey all the time.
A lot of times they grind up the bad parts of the turkey meat(such as the skin) and it increases the fat content quite a bit.
Most turkey meat can be compared to 90/10 or sometimes even 80/20 ground beef!!!

Key thing here... Read your nutritional labels people!

Yep... Ground turkey tastes like shit. Might as well stick with lean red meat.

We mix ground turkey with bison to make tacos. It's pretty damn tasty!

Me too, but I'm willing to bet it is nowhere near the price of 4% beef($3.58 a lb at Wally World).

Another vote for ground Bison...it's a little pricey, but very tasty and quite lean. I've got a great Chili recipe from Men's Health that I use it in.
