I came across a recipe for turkey paprikash while looking for something new and different to do with my ground turkey. I made some modifications and the result was this recipe, something like goulash meets stroganoff meets tacos. A weird but wonderful hybrid one-pot meal. And so incredibly hearty and healthy!
