In a 6- to 8-quart Dutch oven, combine vegetable mixture and turkey. Cook until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally to break up turkey. Stir in beans, undrained tomatoes and, if desired, chile peppers. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. If desired, sprinkle individual servings with cheese.
