This was a creation that came out of not having the necessary ingredients for a different recipe. My family absolutely loved it, and they have asked for me to remake it.


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • jar of salsa
  • 1 medium sized pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • Kraft Cooking Creme - Santa Fe
  • 1 cup of noodles (I used rotini)
  • cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese


Brown the ground turkey, and drain if necessary. Add the pepper, onions, and salsa. Simmer. Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Add the noodles to the turkey mixture. Add the entire package of the Sante Fe cooking creme. Mix thoroughly. Add the cheddar or Mexican cheese on the top and serve. YUM!
