1 cup fresh onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 lbs of lean ground turkey
4 slices of turkey bacon
2 cups tomatoes, undrained (fresh is best, but one 14 oz can diced tomatoes works too)
2 cups of beef broth (one 14 oz can)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 bay leaves
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp crushed whole cumin
2 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1. In a pan, cook the garlic, chopped onions, olive oil, chopped up turkey bacon and ground turkey together over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until all the red in the turkey has turned gray or brown (no red showing as you stir it)
2. Next turn down the heat to low, and add tomatoes, beef broth and stir in all the seasonings. Cover with lid, and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the beef is very tender. Remove the two bay leaves. Serve and Enjoy!
