    1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp dried oregano

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in the oil, then add the onion, garlic, and jalapeño. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the chili powder and oregano, and cook 1 minute more. Add the turkey and corn, and cook until the mixture is nearly dry, about 4 minutes.
