Turkey Stew, Southwestern (M, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: About 4

1-1/2 pounds turkey tenderloins, cut into 3/4" pieces (I used chicken since that is what I had in the house)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 EACH red and green bell pepper, cut into 3/4" pieces (left it out since I can't eat peppers, I used mushrooms)
3/4 cup chopped red or yellow onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 15-1/2 oz. can chili beans in a spicy sauce, undrained
1 14-1/2 oz. can chili-style stewed tomatoes, undrained (I used regular diced tomatoes since stewed tomatoes have too much sugar)
3/4 cup prepared salsa or picante sauce
Fresh cilantro, optional

Place turkey in crockpot, sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, and salt, toss to coat. Add bell peppers. onion, garlic, beans, tomatoes, and salsa. Mix well.

Cover and cook on low 5 hours or until turkey is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp tender. Ladle into bowls and garnish with cilantro.

I served this over whole wheat pasta (you can also use brown rice).

My husband also added more hot sauce. It was spicy enough for me. :)

Poster's Notes:
This is a recipe that I tried the other night, it was pretty good. Of course I changed it around a bit, but my husband enjoyed it, and since it is a crockpot recipe some of you may find it easy to use.
