This is simmering on my stove right now. A delicious comfort dish with minimal prep prior to actual cooking time:

2 tablespoons oil

1 medium-large onion, diced

1 red, yellow, or green pepper, diced

2 lbs. ground turkey

1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes

2 15 oz. cans kidney beans, well rinsed

1 8 oz. can tomato sauce

1/4 cup red wine

1-2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon parsley flakes

3/4 tsp. basil

3/4 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. sea salt

1 bay leaf

1 clove garlic, pressed

Optional grated cheddar or jack cheese

In large pot, heat oil over medium heat and add onion and bell pepper. Saute just until soft. Add turkey and cook until no longer pink.

Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 2 hours. When ready to serve, top each bowlful with grated cheddar or jack cheese if desired. Serves 10.
