Makes 2 servings (one serving = 2.5 proteins, lots of vegetables)
7 ounces ground turkey
1 small green pepper
1 small onion
2--3 cloves garlic
1 hot pepper (optional or to taste. I use 2 serarno or 1--2
2 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon vinegar (I use rice vinegar, but any plain vinegar
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt to taste
Instead of the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste you can use either 1
cup tomato sauce and 1 cup water or 1 cups tomato sauce. When I have
it, I use 2 cups enchilada sauce and adjust the spices.
Spray large non-stick skillet with sides or non-stick saucepan with Pam.
Heat over medium-high heat. Cook onions, peppers, and garlic until
onions begin to be translucent. Crumble in ground turkey and cook
until browned. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 25-30
minutes. After first 5 minutes, adjust seasonings to taste.
NOTE: Sometimes I add 1/2-3/4 lb mushrooms with the green peppers as filler.
