1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 poblano chili pepper, washed, cleaned and small dice (seeds and stem discarded)
¾ pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup basil leaves (Italian or Thai)
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
In a wok or skillet over medium heat, heat oil and then saute garlic for 15 seconds. Add poblano pepper and saute for 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and stir fry, breaking meat up into small pieces, until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir fry for 2 minutes.
Transfer turkey to a serving bowl; serve over jasmine rice or wrap filling into lettuce leaves.
Cook's note: You can use fresh mint leaves instead of basil and substitute ground chicken or pork for the turkey.
