- 1lb ground turkey breast
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion

- ½ teaspoon cayenne
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 beefsteak tomato (extra large, diced)
- 5 ½ cups chicken broth
- 2 cups brown rice (uncooked)
Cook the 2 cups raw rice in 5 cups of chicken broth until all water is absorbed. Reserve the other 1/2 C of broth for later use.
Meanwhile, saute the pepper and onion for 5 minutes in 2 tablespoons of butter on medium-high heat. Add in garlic and saute another minute or two.
Dump in all the spices and tomato paste and stir with the onion mixture until combined.
Keeping pan on medium-high heat, mix the ground turkey and broth in with the spices and onion mixture.
Cook and stir the meat mixture until cooked through. If it drys out, add a little bit of chicken broth as needed.
Add bay leaf and stir the cooked rice into the mixture. Stir until mixture is thoroughly mixed and has taken on a reddish color.
Stir in fresh chopped tomato and 1-2 more tablespoons of butter and season to taste with more salt and pepper.
