Tastier, cheaper, and healthier than the traditional beef with store bought seasoning. If you're not sure about the turkey, go with ground turkey thighs---it's darker, and most people will never know the difference.

These are great! I used a half teaspoon cayenne and I thought that was a decent amount of spice. These are quick and easy too. Thanks!
