Wow! This was so good and easy to make. I cut up the turkey bacon before cooking and just cooked it with the onions. I used two cans of diced tomatoes, drained and didn't need to add any extra liquid. Also didn't add the red or black pepper because my bacon was already peppered. My whole family loved this so I know I will make again. Thanks for posting!
