  • 16 oz. (450 g) ground turkey (93%)
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 red chili
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 3 oz. (80 g) cooked black beans (can be from a can)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3.5 oz. (100 g) onion
  • ½ cup chicken stock (or just use ½ Knorr bouillon cube)
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp. chopped green onion
  • 4 tbsp. fat-free sour cream


  • Chop Jalapeño, red chili, onion and garlic and sauté on a hot pan until the onions become translucent (about 3-4 minutes). If you want to reduce the heat of the chilies a little, you can remove the seeds.
  • Add turkey to the pan, mix everything together and let it all cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, black beans, chicken stock and spices and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Serve with chopped green onion and sour cream on top.
