1 tsp. canola oil

1 lb. ground white turkey

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp. chili powder

1 tbsp. dried leaf oregano

1 tbsp. dried leaf basil

1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. cumin

1 (15 oz.) can seasoned recipe black beans, with liquid

1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained

1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

2 (14.5 oz. each) cans petite diced tomatoes, with liquid



In a large stockpok over medium-high heat, brown ground turkey and onions in hot oil until onions are translucent and turkey is no longer pink.

Add garlic, cook and stir for one minute. Next, add all seasonings and stir to blend well.

Finally, add all remaining ingredients, stir, and then reduce heat to simmer.

Cover and continue simmering for at least one hour to allow flavors to marry. Enjoy!

Kitchen Kimberley's Tip:

Think spice is nice? Add a small (4 oz.) can of diced green chiles for more flavor and heat. Or, add cayenne pepper to taste. Enjoy!
