Spicy Turkey Hotpot - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

Our Spicy Turkey Hotpot has all of the flavours of fajitas in the form of a traditional hotpot and is the ultimate comforting dish.

Turkey is often quite an overlooked meat for most of the year, which is a shame because it’s a cheap and versatile ingredient that tastes fantastic. It’s fantastic in dishes like this Spicy Turkey Hotpot and is a great alternative to chicken.

We’d say that the spice level of this dish is ‘medium’, but you can definitely adjust the level of heat to suit your preference. Use less fajita seasoning if you like it mild, or add some extra chilli or cayenne pepper to turn up the spice.

Our Spicy Turkey Hotpot is super easy to adapt, so if you’re not a fan of any of the ingredients then you can easily swap them out. If you don’t like courgettes then you can simply use mushrooms instead, or swap the black beans out for sweetcorn if you’d prefer for a delicious alternative.
