  • 4. 2 cloves smashed garlic
  • 5. 2 cups sweet potatoes, cut into small cubes
  • 6. 2 tsp. coriander
  • 7. 2 tsp. cumin
  • 8. 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 9. 1 tsp. (or more) chili powder
  • 10. 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 11. 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 12. 4 cups diced tomatoes (and their juice)
  • 13. 1 cup chopped red peppers
  • 14. 1 (540 ml) can black beans, drained
  • 16. 1 cup canned kidney beans, drained
  • 17. 1 small zucchini (about 3/4 cup)
  • 18. 1 lime
DIRECTIONS
  1. Heat olive oil ina large saute pan or small soup pot on medium high heat.
  2. -Add onion, turkey, garlic, and red pepper and saute for 5 minutes.
  3. -Add seasonings and saute for another 5 minutes.
  4. -At this point you could leave the mixture in the pan and continue adding ingredients, or I sometimes find it's easier to transfer it to a casserole dish. I just add the rest of the ingredients and bake it at 375 F for about another 45 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender but firm.
