Simply means Friday is a few hours away. Which also means the premier of Thor is 24 hours away! AHHH! Anyways, got a little side tracked. Ahem. Tonight’s post is another recipe from the Tone It Up plan. I can’t get enough of their recipes and neither can by boyfriend. He helped me prepare this yummy meal last night, very proud of him! So let’s get started…
Very few ingredients are needed, which is why I make this meal a lot. These are also ingredients I usually have on hand at all times. What you need…
- 1 Bell Pepper (any color will do.. I just happened to have an orange one)
- 4 oz of Ground Turkey (I always use Perdue.. less fat and calories)
- 1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
- 1 Can of Kidney Beans
- 1/4 Cup of Diced Jalapenos
- 1/4 Cup of Onion, Diced
- 1 tsp. of Chili Powder (you can put as much as you like depending how hot you want it)
- 1/2 tsp. of Pepper + Salt
- 1 cup of Vegetable Broth
- Optional: add a cup of water, depending on the consistency you want
In a skillet, start by browning your turkey meat. I made them into small patties and used a potato masher to mash up the meat… duh. Cook the meat until brown.
While your meat is cooking, start dicing up your veggies.
In a medium sauce pan, add your kidney beans and vegetable broth. Bring the liquid to a simmer.
Once your beans are simmering, add in your tomatoes and seasonings. Stir ingredients together and turn heat down low. Let this cook for about 5 minutes.
Add in your veggies with the turkey meat.
Stir together until the veggies start to soften up. Optional: add in 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil and salt to give the veggies more flavor and to speed up the process.
After your veggies are cooked, the meat, and tomatoes are hot… add all ingredients into the medium sauce pan. Give this a little stir and add in your cup of water. Let the water heat up for about 3 minutes.
Pour into a bowl and enjoy!
This makes about 6 servings, so pack this for your lunch for work the next day! Simple, easy, and healthy. Did I mention how amazing this tastes? I love that it’s not too spicy or hot. It’s the perfect amount of heat.
