Grilled Turkey Fajitas with Cauliflower Lime Rice

Sharing is caring!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Honeysuckle White. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

A couple of weeks ago, I created the most fabulous dish on the planet. I love Mexican food so anytime I get to take a cut of meat that is my favorite and season it up and place it on a tortilla shell, I am a happy girl. That is what I discovered when I created these yummy Grilled Turkey Fajitas. They are so good I even entered them in a contest!

Another thing I discovered — I will never buy store bought fajita seasoning again since I learned to make my own.

Now normally when grilling season starts, I am grabbing up chicken, steak, hot dogs, and pork chops, but I recently discovered Honeysuckle White Turkey Breast Cutlets.

They are phenomenal.

Honeysuckle White turkeys are raised without growth-promoting antibiotics! That makes me a happy girl because I love knowing that I can eat foods not full of those horrible antibiotics.

Honeysuckle White is committed to offering better food a better price, that’s why their turkeys raised without growth-promoting antibiotics are available without a premium price.

Now — here's how to make this delicious recipe.

Start with taking the turkey breast cutlets and sprinkling on your seasoning mix and letting them marinate for about 3 hours.

The marinade consists of —

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • ½ Tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil

Once you let it rest and marinate for a few hours, then you put them on the grill. Make sure to cook your turkey to an internal temp of 165 degrees.

Turkey never tasted so good! I don't think I will ever think of turkey just at Thanksgiving after making it like this.

Once they get done grilling, about 5-6 minutes per side, pull them off and let them rest. While they rest, you can make your Cauliflower Rice (just click that link to get the recipe). When it has cooked, simply add in cilantro and lime juice, along with salt and pepper for an amazing guilt free side dish!

I plan on using Honeysuckle White Turkey products this year when we host our big Memorial Day cookout. Instead of going for the usual meats I serve, I am going to grill up some of these turkey breasts and offer a build your own fajita bar which is perfect for those warm summer nights.

Ingredients

SEASONING

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • ½ Tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil

FAJITAS

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 medium yello bell peppers
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 lb. Honeysuckle White Turkey Breast Cutlets
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 medium lime sliced into wedges
  • 8 6-inch tortillas
  • ½ cup sour cream, optional
  • ¼ bunch cilantro, optional

Instructions

  1. Mix all of the ingredients for the fajita seasoning in a small bowl and combine with olive oil. Massage into your turkey cutlets and then cover and place in the refrigerator for about 3 hours or longer.
  2. Cut the onion and bell peppers into ¼ to ½ inch wide strips. Place them in a skillet with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Sautee until the veggies are tender and translucent.
  3. After the turkey has marinated in the refrigerator, preheat your grill. Take the cutlets straight from the marinade and place on the grill. Grill about 6 minutes per side or until internal temp reaches 160 degrees.
  4. Remove and let it rest so that temp can raise to 165 degrees. Slice at an angle and serve on tortillas.
  5. Top with peppers, onions, sour cream, cheese, a few sprigs of cilantro and an extra squeeze of lime if desired.
