The spice gave me that little bite of heat I was looking for from something labeled "chipotle", and it also has a nice smoky flavor.
I think I'll get my monies worth from this $1.15 jar of southwestern yumminess:@)
I called this a stir fry because everything is dumped into a hot grill pan and cooked over high heat.
You may want to oil your pan a bit before adding the food, that's your call.
Chiptle Turkey and Sweet Potato Grilled Southwestern Stir Fry
Makes enough for two people, maybe more if served with rice or black beans
One thinner small sweet potato, partially cooked and cooled
1/4 C BBQ sauce-I used Sweet Baby Rays Honey Chipotle
juice of one lime
1/2 tsp chipotle powder-more if you'd like
a healthy Tblsp chopped cilantro
1 Tblsp olive oil
Approx 1/2 lb turkey tenderloins, cut into 1" cubes
1 medium green bell pepper, 1" diced
1/2 to 1 medium red bell pepper, 1" diced
1/2 baseball sized sweet onion, 1" wedges and separated
- Wash sweet potato, prick it with a knife a few times and microwave for 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.
- Mix BBQ sauce, lime juice, chipotle powder, cilantro, oil and S&P.
- Add turkey, peppers and onion (no sweet potato yet), stir well to coat everything. Let marinate for about 30 minutes.
- While that's marinating, heat up your grill. I used a BBQ wok/pan and put that on the grill as it was heating up.
- Peel the sweet potato, cut in half lengthwise then into 1" chunks. Add to the meat and veggies and stir well to coat everything.
- When the grill is hot dump everything into the grill pan, spread out and allow the food time to get a little char, then stir. Do this until everything is cooked through, approx 15 minutes.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
