I just recently, used this on Grilled Tuna Steaks. I just brush some Lime-chili butter on both sides and grilled. It was fabulous!
(3) Spicy Lime Ground Turkey Chili Serves 4 Prep/cook time Slow cooker-2 hours
One pound Lean Ground Turkey, one yellow onion diced finely, 2 whole limes (washed, zests and juices), 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 2 tablespoons chili powder, 2 cups low sodium vegetable stock, 1- 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, beans are optional ( 1-2/15 oz. cans black beans or your choice of beans). I made this with no beans the last time. Brown lean ground turkey meat in a skillet for 5-6 minutes transfer to slow cooker (crock pot) with a slotted spoon, add all ingredients and stir well. Place lid on, set temperature to medium and let it cook 2 hours. Serve with crusty bread, croutons, crackers. The flavors are so delicious. Hope you enjoy.
