  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 lbs extra lean ground turkey
  • 2 cups onion coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbs garlic chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 tbs fresh or dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves

  • Heat the oil over high heat in a large heavy pot and add the turkey meat. Cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, chopping down and stirring with the side of a heavy kitchen spoon to break up any lumps.
