Paleo Skillet

Marcie Frazee


You don't need to be on a Paleo diet to enjoy this lovely, healthy dish! If ground turkey isn't your thing, feel free to substitute lean ground beef, pork, or chicken. For non-Paleo's, add a touch shredded cheese to further enhance the flavor of this dish!

Don't let the cinnamon and curry powder scare you away! These spices combined produced a slightly sweet flavor that compliment the remaining ingredients of this recipe.
