Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Antipasti on the menu? Try pairing with Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 21 dollars per bottle.

Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto

This wine is featured at Starbucks® locations where their Evenings menu is offered.A soft red sparkling wine, made from Brachetto. This extremely aromatic, complex and historical grape variety grows only in the area of Acqui Terme, in Southern Piedmont. The cold maceration of the grapes, followed by a soft pressing, allows the extraction of the typical intense aromas from the skins and gives to the wine its characteristic light ruby red color. Very pleasant and extremely elegant.Perfect for any occasion. A unique and festive sparkling wine, seductive aperitif, and elegant dessert wine. Pairs well with seafood, cheeses, spicy fare and chocolate. Serve chilled.

Instructions

  1. In a large pan, over medium heat, add a few drizzles of olive oil, the sliced garlic, and the diced onions. Cook until softened. Stir in the 3 1/2 Tbsp of taco seasoning just to combine.
  2. Lower the heat to medium low. Add in the water and ground turkey and use a potato masher to break up the turkey. Stir occasionally to coat the turkey with the seasoning. Cook through completely.
  3. Place your meat into a bowl along with any toppings you want - we used shredded cheddar, diced avocado, and salsa.
  4. For the Spanish rice, boil the the rice until cooked through. Drain and return to the pot.
  5. In a large pan, over medium heat, add the water, tomato paste and a bit of ground black pepper.
  6. Stir until the tomato paste has blended completely.
  7. Stir in the peas & carrots, olives and oregano. Simmer on low for 5-6 minutes.
  8. Stir the rice into the pan and toss to coat the rice well. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  9. Assemble wraps and serve with Spanish rice.
