Have you noticed that I’m having a good time creating dinner bowls lately? These are becoming one of my favorite ways to make an impromptu dinner. All I need to do is have leftover rice, and I can throw together the meal with whatever needs to be used up in the fridge or the produce drawer.

The last few peppers from my garden? Done! A California avocado that is about to be one day too far gone? Done! Hatch chiles, which are just about to vamoose for the season? Done! A pound of a Foster Farms organic ground turkey? Done!

Triple Hatch Chile Turkey Dinner Bowl

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1 bowl

Ground turkey makes an easy, healthy Mexican-inflected filling amped up by Hatch chiles and peppers and onions.


  • Turkey mixture
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 a large red onion, diced
  • 2 big pinches kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pound Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey Breast
  • 5 mild Hatch chiles, roasted, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Hatch chile powder (I used Melissa's Produce ground Hatch Chile powder)
  • .
  • Bowl assembly
  • Hot cooked brown rice (I used Planet Rice Sprouted California Blonde Rice)
  • Jarred Hatch chile salsa (I used Melissa's Produce Hatch Salsa in a jar)
  • Pico de gallo
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Garnish: Mexican pickled vegetables


  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add pepper, onion, salt and cumin and sauté for about 5-7 minutes, stirring often. Add turkey, breaking clumps up with a wooden spoon. Sauté until turkey loses its pink tone, another 5 minutes or so. Add Hatch chiles and chile powder and cook for another couple of minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  2. To assemble bowls: Add a layer of rice to the bottom of a wide, flat bowl. Top with some turkey mixture, some salsa, some pico de gallo and finally, avocado chunks. Garnish with Mexican pickled vegetables for color and spark.
  3. Serves 4.
