Tips and Tricks
Tip: To make this a little more heart healthy you can lower the sodium by getting reduced sodium diced tomatoes.

Tip: To add a little spice you can try adding turkey sausage (out of the casing) instead of the ground turkey.

Tip: Be sure to rinse your beans after you drain them this will also help reduce the sodium levels.
