Cooking Methods

  1. In a medium nonstick saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic for about 2 minutes, or until tender-crisp.
  2. Stir in the cumin, oregano, jalapeno and red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Increase the heat to medium high. Stir in the turkey. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until browned on the outside, stirring frequently.
  4. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, still over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by about one-third.
