They each do something for the other! The ground beef helps to flavor the ground turkey, and the ground turkey lightens up the ground beef!)
In a bowl mix together half of each ground meat.
Chop 1 whole purple onion and saute in a good heavy duty fry pan, or your wok with a little canola oil!!

Add ground beef/turkey mixture to pan, mix well with onions and garlic.
Brown....seasoning with the following:

Sprinkle each seasoning across the top of the meat and mix it into the meat while in the pan! Please don't overcook, just til pink is gone!! (Jeff's a stickler about that one!)
