Every once in awhile, Biju sends in a recipe just for the heck of it! We think you’ll enjoy this dish even though the recipe calls for more ingredients than the recipes that appear in The Feed Zone Cookbook. Biju says this recipe is a great way to use up some leftover turkey.
What to get:
1-2 T olive oil
1 lb. turkey, ground or chopped
½ medium onion, diced
¼ C jalapeño or Anaheim peppers, diced
1 large tomato, diced
½ C celery, diced small
½ C carrots, diced
2 T tomato paste
1 T taco or Mexican seasoning
1 T molasses or Brown Sugar
1 T soy sauce
1-2 C chicken or vegetable stock
1 C kidney or pinto beans, cooked / canned
Salt and Pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro, chopped
What to do:
Coat a heavy pot with oil and bring to medium/high heat. Add all the veg and turkey, stir in taco seasoning. Stir frequently until turkey browns, approximately 5-7 minutes. Add more oil if needed.
Stir in tomato paste and molasses. Add chicken stock, bring to a low rolling boil and cook for 25-30 minutes. Lastly, add cooked beans, and adjust salt and pepper to your liking. Top with fresh chopped tomato and cilantro.
