  • 2 whole bell peppers
  • 1 whole onion
  • 2 whole jalapeño (with seeds for more spice, can leave out seeds)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1.5 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz cans)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1.5 tablespoon kosher salt (or to taste, added gradually)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle pepper
  • 2 whole bay leaves


  • In a dutch oven, saute your onion, jalapeño, and bell peppers in some oil with a pinch of salt. Cook them until they are nice and soft, about 5 minutes.  
  • Next, add in your seasonings and your minced garlic. Stir and cook until your garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. 
  • Add in your ground turkey with a generous pinch of salt and brown the meat. This should take 5-7 minutes. Then add in your chicken broth, diced tomatoes and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer immediately and cover. Cook for at least 1 hour, but the longer it simmers, the better!
  • After an hour, give it a taste, adjust the seasonings and then dig in. Garnish with sour cream, cheese, cilantro, green onions and more!
