    Recipe Tips

    Have fun with this recipe by adding different garnishes. Try chopped, cooked bacon along with the cheese and sour cream. Or, garnish with additional shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream and sliced green onion.

    For a different spin, try replacing the turkey with cooked, chopped chicken, ham or sausage.

    Instead of just broccoli, use a variety of veggies here, such as diced red pepper, zucchini, peas, shredded carrots or baby spinach.
