In a large skillet, heat the oil and sautÃ© the ground turkey, red and yellow bell peppers and jalapeÃ±o over medium-high heat until turkey is cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add sliced chard leaves, garlic, white pepper, cayenne pepper (if using) and salt to taste. Cook until chard is wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine cornmeal with broth, water and 1/4 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly until mixture reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese, if using.
Coat a 9x9-inch baking dish with canola oil spray. Spread half the cornmeal evenly in bottom of the baking dish. Spoon the turkey mixture over the top. Evenly spread remaining cornmeal over the turkey. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cornmeal crust is lightly browned
