Southwest Turkey Stew
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 5 hours
I reduced the turkey to 3/4 lb., used chili beans instead of turkey chili and cooked it on top the stove instead of a slow cooker. It could use more veggies. Celery, corn, zucchini. Was very tasty and we have leftovers for another meal.
I've made this a number of times. I like to use leftover dark turkey meat and I add a can of corn (or a cup of frozen corn). I use just "chili beans" instead of turkey with beans. My whole family - including my 7 year old daughter - LOVES it.
This was a great recipe, but I made some changes. First 5-6 hours was unrealistic for me so I precooked the meat and vegetables then cooked it with the rest of the ingredients in a pot for about 15 minutes. Plus, I used 98% fat free ground turkey instead of tenderloin.
I was put off by the ingredients at all! Loved the recipe, I added some grilled onions and reduced the turkey to 3/4 a lb and added a can of black beans.
Although there are a lot of ingredients, this recipes is worth the effort. Great flavor and texture with all the veggies, etc going on. I used cooked chicken tenders that I had in the freezer for the turkey and that simplified the recipe a little.
