OMG Soooooooo yummy! I got this recipe from our dietary menu at work. It may sound kinda wierd, but it's awsome!

1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion-diced
1 large (or 2 small) green bell peppers-diced
1 medium-large jar of chunky salsa (whatever hotness you choose)
3 16 oz cans of refried beans
approx. 4 cups of water
cumin to taste

In a stock pot or dutch oven combine cumin and turkey and brown.
When turkey is almost browned, add onions and bell peppers. cook till tender.
Add the refried beans, stir untill completely mixed with turkey, onion, and peppers.
Add the jar of salsa, stire untill combined.
Add water untill desired consistancy.
simmer on low heat (careful, bottom may burn if heat too high) for about 15 min.

*you could also add a couple jars of kidney or black beans, or some chopped tomato if you like.
**Edit-add a couple tablespoons of oil with the ground turkey so it doesn't stick....ground turkey has little to no fat in it.
