Cast your vote for Turkey Stew

Sometimes, I try to make dinner from what I have in the fridge and cupboard instead of going for the 4-star meal. This is a “stew” I put together using some leftovers, and it actually was quite good. It’s just beans, rice, ground turkey and chilies. It’s simple, easy and if you have these ingredients, then dinner is ready before you know it! So, here is my recipe for a tasty meal that can be thrown together with whatever’s in the cupboard in less than half hour.
