This is a wonderfully satisfying stew. You can make it as spicy as you want. We used no-salt tomatoes, and didn't miss the sodium at all. As a side note, this can also be done on the stove top by pan-frying the turkey in a dutch oven and then adding the ingredients and simmering for at least 30 minutes. Both methods work great. We serve this over brown rice. Also, if you have frozen pepper and onions, those work great!
