South of the border turkey loaf

I wanted a turkey loaf that was reminiscent of south of the border flavors – this turned out to be excellent, juicy and flavorful. It is delicious topped with sour cream and sliced avocado! This is another dish that you can easily double or triple and freeze in smaller portions. Minus the dairy, it’s a wonderful paleo dish.Meatloaf


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • can of chopped mild (or hot) green chiles
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
  • 1-2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • Garnish with: sour cream, sliced avocado, cilantro


  • Heat oven to 375*
  • Prepare all the veggies
  • Beat eggs, add spices and veggies and mix
  • Add ground turkey and mix well
  • Top with shredded cheese
  • Shape into greased loaf pan or 9×13 pyrex baking dish for double batches and bake for ~50 minutes

Super mom tip: run all your veggies through the food processor to quickly chop! Grater blade works great for carrots and use the chopper blade (pulse 10-12 times) for onion and peppers.dit-elle-Esther
