1 can (29 oz.) cut tomatoes (juice and all)
1 can (14 oz) red beans-rinsed

  1. In a covered microwave cooker (large glass bowl), cook turkey for 4 minutes, then drain thoroughly. Chop with food chopper or processor.
  2. Chop onions and peppers, place into pot. Press in garlic & add seasonings. Add tomato products and stir well.
  3. Place back in microwave and heat to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
