Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1½ pounds ground turkey
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 3 T chili powder
  • 1¼ cups ale (you can use a lager light beer in a pinch, but a darker, full-bodied brew will be better)
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • 1 4-ounce can diced green chilies
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup finely chopped scallions
  • Whole Wheat Buns
  • Shredded Green Cabbage
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add turkey, green pepper and garlic and cook until turkey is cooked through, breaking up the meat. Add chili powder, ale, ketchup, chiles and worcestershire sauce, stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the mixture thickens slightly. Add scallions and season to taste.
  2. Serve on toasted whole wheat buns, topped with cabbage.
