Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 2 - 2 1/2 pounds ground turkey (see notes)
  • 1 14.5 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 16 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained (or 1 1/2 cups frozen corn)
  • 1 32 oz. can Italian-style diced tomatoes
  • 2 8-oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hamburger seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and green pepper and saute until tender, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add ground turkey and saute until browned and cooked through, 7-10 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Taste, adjust seasonings, and serve hot.

Recipe Notes

The ground turkey I buy at the store comes in 1 1/4 pound packages, so I use 2 1/2 pounds here. Feel free to do the same. Also, I use the 7% fat kind, but any version is fine. As is ground chuck if you would rather sub that.
This makes a lot! The leftovers are great for lunch later in the week and the extras also freeze great.
