1. In a large pot, sautee bell peppers, onion and garlic. At the same time, in a pan gently born ground turkey to remove all the juices (doesn’t have to be fully cooked as it will cook in pot once added).
2. Add turkey, tomatoes, beans spices and cilantro to pot and cook for 20-30 minutes on low to medium heat.
3. Let cool and serve. I always like to make and then have the next day for lunch or dinner as everything has time to marinate together to get a rich, delicious flavor.
