2 pounds ground turkey breast
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons ground cumin

Salt to taste
1 bay leaf
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles, drained
1 small jalapeño, seeded and finely sliced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add turkey and cook, stirring often, until browned. Transfer to a bowl and return pot to heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, bell pepper and onion and cook until softened and golden brown. Return turkey to pot and add coriander, cumin, oregano and salt. Stir well to combine. Add bay leaf, chiles, jalapeños and broth, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 45 to 50 minutes. Gently stir in beans and cook for 30 minutes more. Add additional spices and salt/pepper to taste.
