Not only was this incredibly tasty, but start to finish it only took about 30 minutes to prepare and I had leftovers for lunch #Bonus!

Perfect fall recipe that will fill your tummy and leave you OH so satisfied!

Did I mention it's also Gluten Free?

TIP: If you don't like too much heat, cut back on the chili powder and use cherry tomatoes instead of fire roasted tomatoes!

1 can fire roasted tomatoes
3/4 pound ground turkey (12 oz)
