TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups Minute® Brown Rice
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups salsa

  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook turkey and onion over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Add salsa, tomato sauce, bouillon and salt; heat through.
