I am rating this a 5-star because it is fast, easy, healthy and economical. Honestly I thought it was a little bland but It makes a good base recipe, though, so I added some minced garlic, cayenne, hot sauce, worcester, green pepper and served it with lots of topping choices like avocado, cilantro, black olives, cheddar cheese, a squeeze of fresh lime, crushed tostito chips and sour cream. Problem solved, everyone gave it a big thumbs up. Next time I will sub cannellini beans for the chick peas (just a personal preference of texture). Anyway, it's a keeper and thanks for posting it!
Super easy and a great supper served with cornbread and oatmeal cookies for desert on a cold rainy night. Comfort food at its best! I only used 1/2 pound of turkey and also subsituted cannelini beans (for the ckickpeas) with delicious results. This is a must for busy moms who want a hot meal waiting at the end of the day. Thanks Derf we will be having this often!
This really is a great base recipe. I drained the beans and used a can of tomato paste instead of tomato sauce which ensured it not being watery. I added corn, diced bell pepper and okra. Also tweaked it with a little cumin and garlic and paprika. It was a hit! So easy to make and even better next day!
