Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner so I partnered with Farm Rich to create a simple weeknight meal to celebrate the occasion. They have so many products to choose from so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make at first.
Since my kids love mozzarella sticks, I opted to use those to make these Cheesy Mexican Ground Turkey Roll Ups.
Though my kids are now 20 and 15, my youngest was just 9 years old when I started this blog. Needless to say, her food palette was pretty limited.
That is until I started to engage her in our nightly meal prep by helping in the kitchen and going to the store and letting her find at least one new item she was going to try that week.
It also didn't hurt that she wanted to eat the food I was putting on the "special blog plates" (a.k.a. the ones I use to take my photos on). A
fter a while, she outgrew the frozen chicken nugget stage and now is even more adventurous than I am with new foods.
Kids love being a part of something and for me, I always enjoyed learning and cooking in the kitchen with my family; which is what I've tried to instill in my two girls.
This recipe is great for those just learning to cook because you only need three ingredients: Farm Rich breaded Mozzarella Sticks
They are made with 100% mozzarella cheese and serve as a good source of calcium and protein, extra lean ground turkey and a jar of your favorite salsa--hot, medium or mild, you decide!
How do you make Ground Turkey Roll Ups?
To make this recipe, start by preheating your oven to 425°F. Separate your ground turkey into six portions; then form the meat around one frozen Mozzarella Stick and place in an oven safe baking dish. Repeat for all six portions.
Next, pour the jar of salsa over the roll ups, spreading it so that all of the roll ups are all covered with the sauce.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes until the turkey is cooked through and white in color; then take a bite and watch the cheese just ooze from the center!
See how easy this recipe is and it was pretty tasty too! Each roll up has only 195 calories, 21g protein, 6g fat and contains Vitamins A and C, Calcium and Iron so you can feel good about serving this to your family.
These Cheesy Mexican Ground Turkey Roll Ups made with Farm Rich breaded Mozzarella Sticks will definitely add some fun to your Cinco de Mayo dinner celebrations. ~Enjoy!

Yum! Now I am craving chicken! I love roasting whole chickens on Sunday evenings, and I always use the bones to make a broth. It’s a great way to have a surplus of broth in the freezer, and it’s so handy when anyone in my house gets sick! I will try this recipe the next Sunday I roast a chicken 🙂
