Tex Mex Turkey Scramble Meal Prep is the perfect start to your morning. You get smokey chipotle ground turkey, crispy potatoes, and fluffy eggs topped with gooey cheddar cheese and your favorite salsa! You'll never have to worry about eating a healthy and filling breakfast again.
I am not a breakfast person. There is just too much happening in the morning for me to put any effort into making a nice balanced breakfast. I usually go for a bowl of sugary cereal or a bagel loaded with cream cheese. Both are okayyyyy options, but they leave me feeling hungry and unsatisfied a few hours later. That's why I love these balanced and super easy meal prep breakfast bowls! The spicy smokey turkey and fluffy eggs fill me up, and the cheese and potatoes give me the carb fix I need to be happy. This is a massive hit at home!
- Frozen Potatoes - Potatoes O'Brien is homestyle potatoes with bell peppers and onion. I used the Ore-Ida brand in this recipe. It might also be called southwest potatoes at your grocery store. If you have trouble finding Potatoes O'Brien in your freezer section, you can use homestyle potatoes.
- Chipotle Ground Turkey - I LOVE using oregano and chipotle powder to season the ground turkey. It is a little spicy, but once mixed with everything else, I would say the spice level is mild. If you're a little worried, you can reduce the amount of chipotle chili powder to ½ teaspoon or avoid it altogether and use a packet of taco seasoning.
