Mexican Dirty Rice Recipe

I couldn't figure out what I wanted for dinner.. K picked out the meat today and picked ground turkey.. she didn't want meat loaf, I don't have any buns for hamburgers or tomatoes left for marinara sauce or tortilla's for tacos.. sooo I go through my cabinets and came up with this.. it was awesome!!! Hubs had 3 helpings and we have NO leftovers!! I think he would of had more if there was more.. K liked it but said it was spicy.. she doesn't do spicy..

I call it Mexican Dirty Rice... (and super cheap too!)

1 pd ground turkey (or beef whatever you have)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp creole seasoning (like Tony Satcheres or Zattarans)
1 package of taco seasoning
1-1.5 cups of rice
2 cups water

I ground the turkey with the garlic powder and creole seasoning... (in a sauce pan)
after it's browned add rice and taco seasoning mix together
add water stir, bring to boil, cover put temp on low and cook until rice is cooked (20-30 min)
