This came from a book called Great Recipes Collection--Chicken Dinners. I made this with cubed chicken instead of turkey. When I first tasted it, I thought it was too tomato-y, but it grows on you!! I omitted the beer because I didn't have any. I'd like to know if anyone likes it with the beer.

- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1 cup chopped green sweet pepper

I started making this the other day, got to step 2, and then my husband had to finish it off. He followed your recipe to a T, beer and all. Everyone who had it for dinner that night really enjoyed it, said it was great. Great way to use leftover turkey. BTW, the final product was just the right amount of spice for the adults, too much for the kids - so I'd probably leave a little out next time and serve with extra hot sauce on the table. Thanks SashasMommy!
AWESOME!! None of us thought it had too much tomato flavor in it. I made as directed (used turkey) except I left out the beer. We don't drink and I didn't want to by a beer for just that. It most certainly will be put into our favorites because it was so quick and easy to make. I think I might try this next time with some pork. I love recipes that you can play with and know it will taste great each time. Thanks SashasMommy for sharing! :)
