“This is a very hearty sauce that I was messin' around with. It came out deliciously but like everything, it can still use a tweek here and there. Also part of my "Operation: Skinny Aaron" arsenal.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a big pot over medium high heat, begin browning the turkey in the oil. Season with salt and pepper and once the turkey is mostly cooked and creating a good bit of steam, add the herbs.
  2. Add the chopped vegetables all at once. This will help the pan cool down a bit to start the process of sweating the vegetables. Cook for 5-10 minutes.
  3. When the vegetables are well sweated -- yeah sweated, add all of your liquids, beans, and tomatoes to the pot.
  4. Simmer for 20 minutes or so, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  5. Season with the pepper flakes, and stop the heat.
  6. Allow the sauce to rest, for another 20 minutes. Trust me, don't skip this step. It does worlds for the flavor and you'll save yourself the trouble of a scorched tongue.
