MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2012

This was okay for me, but my husband loved it. I didn't think the jalapeno added any spice - next time I'd leave in the seeds.

MY REVIEW

My husband and I liked this recipe alot.

I did not pay attention to the 4 hours simmer time and of course started it an hour before we were to eat. To compensate I sauted the onions, garlic and jalapeno pepper in a little olive oil first and then added the turkey meat. While that was cooking continued to add the remaining ingredients.

I used hamburger buns that I heated in a pan with a bit of butter like a grilled cheese sandwich. Placed those open face, scooped the turkey joes, grated cheddar cheese and then topped with the avocado slices. It was perfect. And so much better than regular Joes that always taste like spagetti sauce to me. We will be making this again.
