I’m a huge fan of this One Pot Ground Turkey, Rice and Beans recipe. So much so that I’ve made it three times in the last two weeks!

I love how the rice cooks in chicken broth along with the ground turkey, bell peppers, beans and spices in a pot. It results in the coziest tastiest dish. Perfect for nights where you want comfort food, but still want it to be healthy too.

This One Pot Ground Turkey, Rice and Beans recipe kind of tastes like the inside of a stuffed pepper. It’s just so flavorful and comforting!

This recipe came to be because I didn’t know what to make for dinner the other day, and I had a few limitations.

1) I had to use ground turkey because that was all that was left.

2) I couldn’t use a tomato sauce base because it can be too acidic for my husband.

3) I wanted to use beans because my toddler loves them and has been quite picky lately.

So, I looked up “rice, beans and ground turkey” on google to get some inspiration.

This Cuban Style Rice Beans and Turkey by Clean Eating Mag came up and became the inspiration for this One Pot Ground Turkey, Rice and Beans (GF) recipe.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
A healthy and naturally Gluten-free dish, made in one pot, with ground turkey, rice and beans and spiced with bell peppers and cumin.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp ground cumin
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 2 Tbs tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 15.5 ounce cans of red kidney beans, (31 ounces total)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup jasmine rice

Instructions

  • Add olive oil to a large pot/ pan with a tight fitting lid, and heat over medium- high heat. Add the ground turkey, onion powder, garlic powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, black pepper, and salt, and mix. Stir often, until turkey is browned and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Then, add the diced bell peppers, mix and cook, about 2 more minutes.
  • Push the ground turkey mixture to the sides of skillet, leaving a hole in the center of the pan. Add the tomato paste and vinegar to the center and cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds.
  • Then, add the red kidney beans, chicken broth, and jasmine rice. Mix everything together. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then quickly reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender, about 40-45 minutes.
  • Check the mixture at 40 minutes and mix. Test the rice. If it needs 5 more minutes, let it cook a little longer. 40 minutes was perfect for me.
