Ingredients

    Turkey, Ground turkey - 2lbs

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 2tbsp
    Cayenne Pepper (ground) - to taste
    Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened - 1 tbsp
    Cinnamon (ground) - 1 tbsp
    Cumin (ground) - 1 tbsp
    Chili powder - 1 tbsp
    Salt - to taste

    Onions, (chopped) - 1 cup
    Green bell Pepper (chopped) - 1 cup
    Red bell Peppers (chopped) - 1 cup
    Garlic - 3 cloves

    Dark Red Kidney Beans (Goya Blue label) - 2 15.5oz cans
    Petite Diced Tomatoes - 14.5oz can
    Tomato Sauce, 1 cup/8oz can

Directions

In a skillet brown the turkey meat and set aside.

In a skillet or large pot add the olive oil, onions, red peppers, green peppers and garlic and saute until the onions are transparent. Stir in red kidney beans and let them cook for a few minutes. Add the turkey and tomatoes. Add cocoa powder, cinnamon, cumin, chilli powder, salt and cayenne pepper - stir all of these in really well. Continue to cook and stir for a minute or so to allow flavors to blend then lower temp to the lowest setting with a tight fitting lid and let cook 45-50 minutes.

If you wish to use a slow cooker you can sauté the onions, peppers and garlic in the olive oil the night before then just put everything in the slow cooker the next morning. I typically put it on low for 6 to 8 hours.

If I have the time I like to let it simmer for several hours to let the flavors blend. Freezes great and gets better the older it gets. :)
