Serves 6-8 Cook Time 1 hour

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/4 C yellow onion, chopped
1 Tbsp garlic minced
1 1/4 C green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small sweet banana pepper, chopped
1 lb lean white meat ground turkey
1/4 lb Italian style turkey sausage
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
dash cardamon
dash coriander
1 bay leaf
1 (12oz) can low-sodium diced tomatoes
kosher salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet until fragrant. Add onions, garlic, bell and banana peppers and saute, stirring occasionally, until tender (about 3 min.)
  2. Add turkey and cook until no longer pink. Use a wooden spoon to break meat into “crumbles”.
  3. Turn heat down to a low simmer and add the rest of the ingredients, mix to incorporate flavors.
  4. Simmer on low for 1 hour. This is also excellent in a crock pot.

Recommended for patients on the Modified Profast (Fast and Flexible) Program,  Nutriplus (Balance Your Pyramid) Program or Maintenance Program.
