I love how recipes are created, especially these turkey fajitas. Matt and I attempted to make skinnier sloppy joes (with the mix) last week by using turkey. It didn’t work very well because of the lack of fat in the turkey. We love making fajitas with the Lawry’s mix and thought I wonder how fajitas would be with turkey? Then Matt looked at me and said “SLOPPY FAJITAS!”. Then we high-fived. And that is why I love him! 2 days later we were on it! And these turkey fajitas sloppy joe style did not disappoint. Next I think I need to start making my own fajita spice mix, but until then this will have to do. Best part about this recipe is that it is quick! It might just qualify as a 30 minute meal… someone call Rachel Ray!!

Chop onions and bell pepper and cook until tender. Now say tender in a New Zealand accent (tinda!).

If you want to get crazy (or just accidentally add too much oil to the pan.. *cough* matt *cough*) you can fry your tortillas!
