Wonderful easy, healthy, and hearty dish We loved this dish - it was so easy to make and very healthy! We left out the onion and salt - and it was still incredibly tasty and spicy - went with pinto beans, and used 1.3 lbs. turkey. It was a bit watery so next time we'll use 1.5 cups water, 1.5-2 pounds turkey, less pepper for a milder dish, and more raisins and olives to taste to add more flavors (adding raw raisins at the end also added sweetness and texture). Also used cooking spray instead of the first 2 tsp oil (but still used oil to stir the garlic) and an electric skillet instead of Dutch oven. Will definitely cook this again! Pros: Easy and little time to prepare, healthy ingredients, good winter dish Cons: On the spicy side, a little watery (but easy to alter recipe)
This was a very tasty dish, even as I adjusted this recipe to suit the preferences of my household, using half the garlic and cumin called for. Working from my pantry, I substitued black beans for those that were suggested and added some frozen corn for color. This recipe freezes well and I will use it often !
