Tips & Substitutions
- Rice. If planning to have leftovers or use as meal prep, use pre-cooked rice instead of uncooked rice. Uncooked rice will continue to absorb the liquid and result in mushy rice and a no liquid soup.
- Bell peppers. I used a red and green bell pepper but you can use yellow or orange instead. Use whatever color you prefer and/or have on hand.
- Ground turkey. Instead of ground turkey, you can use ground chicken, ground beef or ground pork.
- Slow cooking & pressure cooking. Sauté vegetables and brown ground turkey before slow cooking or pressure cooking. Then, add all ingredients, aside from rice into the cooker and stir. Slow cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Pressure cook on high for 20 minutes and allow a natural release for 10 minutes.
