Though the ingredient list looks long, this recipe is fast and easy to make. Once you brown the turkey in onions and garlic in a pot, you throw in the broth, tomatoes and tomato paste, chilis, bell pepper and chili powder, stir and walk away and do some laundry. Just before 30 minutes is up, throw together a salad and serve. When scooping up a spoonful, you find yourself dredging up some chips which give this added flavor and texture. Melted cheese on top mixes in and YUM, it is delicious. For finicky eaters, you may want to puree the chopped tomatoes, and be sure to chop the red bell pepper very finely. The chilis disappear and the chili powder is so well absorbed into the flavors that you hardly notice it. We love this recipe. Your family will, too!
