"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, garlic, and all the dry seasonings. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft. Increase heat to medium-high, add half the turkey and lightly season with about 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, breaking up the meat as you go until brown. Add remaining meat and lightly season again. Add beans, chilies, tomatoes and their juices, tomato puree, and about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour, stir occasionally. Remove lid and continue to simmer for another 1/2 hour to thicken. Serves 8

Personal Notes:
I prefer turkey because the sweet and leaner meat is great with the hit of the other flavors. You can make spicier if you want. I serve with sides of sour cream, hot sauces, cheese, scallions, black olives and scallions for toppings and let everyone create their own. Serve with Frito Scoopsİ or Tostido Scoopsİ and you don't even need a spoon.
