1 bag frozen spinach, thawed 
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 lb. ground bison1 lb. ground turkey (you can use any meat or mix of meats that you want here -- turkey, chicken, beef, pork, bison.. options are endless!)
1 TBSP black pepper
1/2 TBSP dried oregano
1/2 TBSP dried basil
1/2 TBSP dried thyme
1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder
1/2 TBSP chili powder
1/4 C Franks Red Hot (or your favorite Hot Sauce)

Put the thawed spinach in a strainer and press to remove the excess water from the spinach. This will make your life easier later and prevent you from getting a soggy mush at the end.
Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add coconut oil
Add in the meat and mix well so that your two different meats are combined then distribute across the pan so that it cooks evenly
Continue stirring and chopping up the meat as it cooks
When the meat is just over halfway cooked, add in the pepper, herbs and spices
Mix well and continue cooking
Once the meat is fully cooked, reduce the heat to medium and drain the fat as needed
Return the skillet to the medium heat and add the drained spinach to the pan and mix well. 
Add the Frank's Red Hot to the pan and mix some more
Cook for another 3 minutes or so to heat the sauce and spinach
Turn off heat and let mixture stand for stand for at least 5 minutes in the skillet to allow flavors to meld together

This is a great way to add in some flavor variation and color to your standard ground meat. It also allows you to sneak in a few extra greens :) Just like the other ground meat recipes in my site, feel free to play different seasonings based on what you have in your cabinet.
