Mexican Haystacks

Hello heaven!!  This was amazing!!  Look how pretty it is too :)  SO SO SO Good!!  We made everything the night before too, so it was super speedy!!!  Perfect amount of spice too!
Servings 5 - 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 green, 1 purple, 1 blue

2 cups uncooked brown rice
1 bunch fresh cilantro

1lb ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
2-3 cups salsa

1 avocados, chopped
1 red peppers, chopped
1 ripe mangoes, chopped
fresh cilantro for garnish

Start your brown rice in a pot on the stove, or in a rice maker.

Next, add ground turkey and chopped onion to a large saute pan. Add garlic powder and salt and pepper. When the turkey is browned, add 4 cups of salsa. Bring the salsa to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.

In the meantime, chop the cilantro, pepper, avocado, and mango. When the rice is done, simply stir in almost all of the fresh cilantro, leaving just enough to garnish each dish.
