Spring peas, ground turkey, cumin, cilantro and potatoes come together to create this quick comforting weeknight dish.
Don’t you love it with you whip something up from the fridge and it turns out incredible? That’s exactly what happened here. We served this over rice and the portions were extremely generous. A huge hit with everyone in my house ranging from ages one to adult.
