  1. In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute bell pepper, celery and onion until tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add turkey, and continue to saute until turkey loses its outer pink color. Stir in tomatoes, and cover. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until turkey is cooked through (no longer pink inside). Serve over hot cooked rice.

This was a really good recipe. I used chicken instead of turkey, and sprinkled some herb chicken seasoning and rosemary on top of it.

It was tastier than I thought it would be. I used diced tomato/chile mixture. VERY simple. We didn't care for the celery, so next time, we'll leave them out.

My kids loved this! Next time we'll add salsa to the "recipe ready" diced tomatoes.

This was good...I added a can of drained sweet corn which I highly recommend. Cilantro would also be a nice addition to this dish if you're a fan!!

This was very tasty. I used a couple tablespoons of oil and it was fine. I also added salt and pepper. Sheila - Fountain Valley, CA

I was searchng for a recipe for dinner last night and I had all these ingredients so tried the recipe and this will be a staple. I used ground turkey which I added to skillet after browning the onions and cooked until no longer pink, then added diced tomato because I didn't have stewed tomatoes. I also added: dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes fresh ground black pepper, and garnished with diced fresh Italian parsley and fresh basil. Served it over brown rice. This is a great basic recipe that you can use in a variety of ways. Quick and easy.

Went strictly by the recipe, and thought it was pretty good. Didn't necessarily care for the celery, so I might try with corn instead next time.

Was ok, nothing spectacular, but good for a quick night. I spiced it up by chopping up a jalapeno and adding it. Didn't use the celery.
