2-3 lbs. ground turkey
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. frozen or canned corn
1 red or yellow onion, chopped
Four 15-oz cans stewed or fire-roasted diced tomatoes (to your taste)
2 jalapeño chiles, seeded and choppped
2-4 of your fav cooked sausages, chopped (I like Aidell's apple sausage)
3 tbsp. whiskey or bourbon
1 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. dried minced onion or onion powder
16 oz. (4 cups) elbow macaroni
4 cups water
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
Crystal Hot Sauce or Tabasco
1. I a large pan or Dutch oven, add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Stir in the ground turkey, diced sausages and jalapenos and saute until the meat is cooked through.
2. Add corn, tomatoes, whiskey, salt, granulated garlic, black pepper, dried minced onion, macaroni, and water. Stir, cover, and cook over medium low heat 20-30 minutes or until pasta is done. Taste halfway through cooking and re-season as needed.
3. Serve with shredded cheese and Crystal Hot Sauce or Tabasco (just in case anyone likes theirs extra spicy) on the side.
