Notes

Although we listed measurements, this is a dish that you can add, subtract, or change up spices, cheese or meat to your preference. We ended up adding more of the pickled yellow peppers along with about 1/3 cup of the juice from the pickled peppers in order to really bring out the taste. Make sure to taste and adjust the seasoning once the turkey is cooked, and spices are added.
