I fully accept that this recipe is just dumping cans in a pot. It probably covers the entire adult RDA of sodium. But it’s sooo good and sooo easy! I’m planning to experiment with switching some of the ingredients to low-sodium versions… but here’s the original.
Yield: About 8 x 1 cup servings.
- 1 pound ground turkey breast
- 3 tablespoons taco seasoning (½ of a 1.25 ounce packet… I use Ortega)
- 1 x 15 ounce can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes*
- 1 x 15 ounce can black beans
- 1 x 15 ounce can whole kernel corn
- 1 x 5.5 ounce can V8 (or tomato juice)
* I hate the texture of chunky tomatoes, so I blend them in a food processor before adding to the slow cooker.
- Brown the turkey in a large skillet and drain off any extra fat.
- Place the turkey in a 3½ – 4 quart slow cooker.
- Add all the other ingredients (do not drain the beans, tomatoes, or corn) and stir.
- Cook for 2-3 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low.
We like to have it with tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and just a bit of sour cream. Sometimes, if I’m on my game, I make cornbread to go with it as well.
