Cooking time including prep- 30 mins

Ingredients : 

1 lb 93% lean ground turkey meat

1 cup of diced Vidalia or Sweet onion

1 cup of diced bell peppers

1 can (28oz) crushed tomatoes

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms *optional

1 packed of Simply Organic Spicy Chili powder (you can use any brand I’m sure)

  • You can also add jalapeños

Cooking spray or Misto  ( http://www.misto.com )


In large sauce pan coated with cooking spray combine onions, peppers and mushrooms and sauté until slightly browned

Place to the side , in a separate pan (or the same I washed out this one then reused it due to lack of space) cook ground turkey until brown and fully cooked. Drain out liquid (fat) during cooking.

In a large sauté pan (can be the same pan you cooked the turkey in) add the can of IMG_3517crushed tomatoes, sautéed veggies, cilantro and chili spices. Mix ingredients and continue to cook until fully combined and heated.

Store in tupperware in fridge  or portion and store in fridge . Depending on your portion sizes you should get about 5-6 meals from this recipe.
