Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the beans in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and set aside 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, coat a non-stick Dutch oven with cooking spray. Warm over medium high heat. Add the onions, carrots, green peppers, sweet red peppers, oregano, cumin and garlic.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the onions start to soften. Remove the vegetables and set aside.
  4. Drain and rinse the beans. Add the beans to the Dutch oven. Add the chicken or turkey stock. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Partially cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours, or until the beans are nearly tender.
  5. Add the reserved vegetables and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the beans are tender.
  6. Add the diced turkey, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, vinegar, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until or until the turkey is cooked. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Let stand 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Enjoy!
