A simple recipe my kids will eat.

HI this is a recipe that has been around my family for awhile. My kids will eat it though one eats only the meat and the other eats the bread with only a tiny bit of meat.

Ground Turkey Pitas with Cumin Chili sauce

This is basically just a turkey loose meat sandwich in pita pockets.
Brown 1 pound of ground turkey with one chopped onion and a couple of cloves of garlic. If needed, de-glaze your pan with a little water. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you are feeling fancy you can de-glaze your pan with white wine or beer. Some times I will add green or red bell peppers, but then my kids won't eat it.

Place in pita pockets with mayo or sauce.

Play with this to taste. I never make it exactly the same way twice. If you are not sure of a spice, start with less than called for and work your way up.

1 cup of plain yogurt, mayo, or sour cream or a combination of any of them.
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice (if you have it, fresh.) If you want a more lemon-y taste, add a little bit of the zest as well.
dash of hot sauce

Mix and serve on the pita meat. This sauce is also good with raw veggies and cooked cauliflower.
