This recipe I adapted from one that calls for ground bison meat…which I’m sure would be good, but we had ground turkey…so ta-dah. It comes together really quickly and is fairly low in fat, but hearty. It makes 4-6 servings and goes well with any beer. The original recipe called to brown meat first, then drain fat, then saute veggies…which sounded too cumbersome at 6:45pm at night after a long day. Adding the turkey (which is very lean) with the sauteed veggies worked well. The jalapeno pepper makes it spicy, but it is really good.
1 lb. ground turkey meat
1 (14.5 oz.) can ranch style pinto beans (or whatever bean you like)
1 (14.5 oz.) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 (14.5 oz) can tomato sauce
1 poblano pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1-2 tsp. chili powder
salt to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon)
Heat olive oil in large dutch oven or pot,
add poblano pepper and onion and saute until soft;
Add garlic and jalapeno, cook about 1 minute.
Add turkey to pot and cook until no longer pink.
Add spices, beans, tomatoes, and tomato sauce; add salt to taste.
Let simmer about 10-15 minutes.
Serve with above garnishes, if desired.
