Prep Time: 30 minutes

- 1 sweet onion, diced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ jalapeño, minced
- 2 lbs. lean ground turkey, cooked and drained
- 14 oz or 1 large no salt added can stew tomatoes
- 1 ½ tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp black pepper

- Add cumin, paprika, chili powder and pepper sauté for 10 minutes.
- Add tomatoes and let cook for 1 ½ on simmer or low heat.
- Once thickened and flavorful, serve with your choice of toppings!
- For a real diet recipe, add chopped zucchini or squash instead of beans. They provide the same rich flavor without the phosphorus or potassium content.
- Cheese is high in phosphorus, if you are on a renal diet due to ESRD or Dialysis, feel free to omit the cheese from this recipe.
- Tomatoes are high in potassium, if you are on a full renal diet, you can leech fresh tomatoes and stew them on your own.
We encourage you to talk with your doctor regarding what diet and nutritional guide is best for you to follow.
