Fiesta Turkey Bowl Recipe and a Wholly Guacamole and Jennie-O Turkey Giveaway

One of my favorite things about having the flexibility to work from home is that I can control what I eat for lunch. Unless I am meeting a friend out, I always eat healthy at home. I was invited by Wholly Guacamole to try out the new Jennie-O Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burger (which is only available at Walmart through the end of March, in April, they will be available nationwide). 

My box full of goodies arrived and I found two Jennie-O free coupons, four Wholly Guacamole free coupons, a meat thermometer (which I desperately needed) and other fun Wholly Guacamole items. This is the same box as my winner will receive in the contest portion of this post.

I knew instantly that I did not want to make a Turkey Burger with my product. I play with my food - I rarely make the same recipe twice and always like to find new ways to use products in the kitchen. One of my favorite lunchtime meals is lettuce wraps and rice bowls made with ground turkey. I used this opportunity to make a Fiesta Turkey Bowl. 
I will say going into making this recipe, I was skeptical - mostly because I am not a fan of ground turkey's consistency and I had no idea how a frozen patty would react. I used a half chopped onion, half of a chopped jalapeno, two turkey burger patty's and sauteed with some olive oil for 15 minutes along with some seasonings. Once the turkey came to 165 degrees, I added a half a can of corn and a half a can of black beans. I then topped it with some Wholly Guacamole and voila! It was perfect and not mushy at all.
