eat beef

Q. Why are the cranberries red?

Brown ground turkey with chopped onions, pepper, celery, Worcestershire, kitchen bouquet, and spices. Add jalapenos, beans, and tomatoes. Transfer to crock pot. Add 1 can vegetable broth or chicken broth. (My dad, “depression era”, would never waste food, so he says to pour the broth into the empty can of tomatoes and then pour it into the pot to not waste any extra tomato juice).
Transfer to crock pot and let simmer on low all day.

When ready to serve, you can just scoop it out OR treat it like nachos which is what my kids like

Put it in an individual serving dish and place corn tortillas and shredded cheese on top

Broil for a minute or two to melt the cheese
