  • 1 can (16 ounces) chili beans, undrained

  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Sour cream and sliced jalapenos, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook turkey and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
