Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F.Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 4: a quarter of the jalapeños for mild, half for medium and all the jalapeños for spicy! Trim, then halve green beans. Peel, then halve carrot lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Thinly slice jalapeño into rounds, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)
Add carrots, green beans, 1 tsp seasoned salt and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to an unlined baking sheet. Season with pepper, then toss to combine. Roast veggies in the middle of the oven until tender-crisp, 12-14 min.
Meanwhile, pat turkey dry with paper towels, then cut into bite-sized pieces. Season with remaining seasoned salt and pepper. Heat a medium oven-proof pan (large oven-proof pan for 4 ppl) over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then turkey. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown and cooked through, 4-6 min.**
Reduce heat to low, then stir cream cheese and 1/4 cup milk (dbl for 4 ppl) into the pan with turkey. Cook, stirring often, until combined, 1-2 min. Arrange turkey in a single layer in the pan. (NOTE: If you don't have an oven-proof pan, transfer turkey mixture to an 8x8-inch baking dish. Use a 9x13-inch dish for 4 ppl.)Sprinkle cheddar cheese and half the jalapeños over top. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.)
Bake turkey in the top of the oven until cheese melts, 3-5 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on cheese so that it doesn't burn!)
