    1 Tbs. oil
    2 onions, finely chopped
    2 stalks celery, thinly sliced

    6 cloves garlic, minced

    1 Tbs. ground cumin (before grinding, dry toast seeds for stronger flavour)
    2 tsp. dried oregano
    1/2 tsp. cracked black peppercorns
    Zest of 1 lime

    2 Tbs. fine cornmeal

    1 cup chicken or turkey broth

    1 (28 oz.) can tomatoes with juice, coarsely chopped

    2 lbs. skinless boneless turkey breast, cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes
    4 cups (two 14 to 19 oz. cans) pinto beans
    2 cups frozen sliced green beans

    1 (4½ oz.) can diced mild green chiles
    1 jalapeño pepper or chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, diced, optional
