Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 calzone and 1 tablespoon sour cream)

Spice up sandwich night with this Tex-Mex inspired favorite packed with ground turkey, fresh veggies, and spicy salsa.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) to pan; cook 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring mixture occasionally. Remove turkey mixture from heat; stir in salsa.

Step 3

Unroll dough; divide into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 6 x 4–inch rectangle. Working with one rectangle at a time, spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture on one side of dough. Top with 3 tablespoons cheese; fold dough over turkey mixture, and press edges together with a fork to seal. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining dough and turkey mixture. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until browned. Serve with sour cream.

Step 4

Black bean salad: Combine 1 (15-ounce) can rinsed and drained black beans, 1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes, 1/2 cup chopped red onion, 1/4 cup chopped celery, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium bowl; toss well to coat.

Better than I expected! I was just looking for something quick and easy that kids would like, but this was a real winner with everyone, myself included. Followed the recipe exactly. Everyone asked me to make it again, and I will.

Followed this recipe but instead of baking pizza dough, I warmed 100% whole grain pitas and simplified the meal prep time. Additionally I topped the turkey + veggies with homemade salsa and shredded a combo of white cheeses. Super quick and tasty! :)

Delicious! Easy and fast, they even worked with ground chicken. I used a crescent rolls can and red and orange peppers. Will make again!

I tweaked the recipe. Added some chopped jalapeno peppers, a touch of cayenne pepper and doubled the spices (chili and cumin). I also used a turkey leg, meat chopped. I cooked the whole in a crockpot over 2 hours with a little water (thickened the water afterwards with some cornstarch). I also used shredded mozzarella cheese. I mixed afterwards with regular Tostito salsa. I didn't try the bean salad. Overall, we really enjoyed the new take on calzones and the spicy flavour. My only issue was in "sealing" the calzone shut. I made several and most of them came slightly opened. I tried pinching with my fingers, with a fork and turning the edge over in my fingers. I will definitely google "how to" next time I make the calzones to perfect this aspect. Enjoy!

These are great! I let the cooling fill as it makes the dough too mushy if it's warm.

This was excellent for a weekday meal, especially teamed with the black bean salad. The flavors were bold and bright. My teenagers raved about the black bean salad. This is going in the rotation. I doubled the filling recipe, because I always buy ground turkey by the pound, and it made an excellent salad the next day.
