  • 2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • ½ cup diced onions

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste

  • 227g (8oz) Mexican-style fresh (raw) chorizo, removed from casings

  • 4 cups (¾-inch-cubed) leftover cooked turkey

  • 3 tbsp chili powder

  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

  • 1 tbsp dried oregano leaves

  • 1 tbsp paprika

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 tsp fine sea salt

  • 1 (24oz/680g) jar fire-roasted diced tomatoes

  • 2 cups turkey or chicken bone broth

  • 1 lime, halved

  • 1 batch Mashed Fauxtatoes, for serving

  • Sour cream, for garnish

  • In a Dutch oven or soup pot, melt the ghee over mediumhigh heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the bell pepper and onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Cook for 1 minute more after adding the garlic.
  • Cook until the chorizo is cooked through, using a wooden spoon to crumble the sausage. Combine the turkey, spices, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in the tomatoes and broth, bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook, uncovered, for about 1 hour, or until the liquid has reduced by a few inches and the stew has thickened. Squeeze the lime juice into the pot and give it a good stir.
  • If necessary, taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve in bowls with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle ofchopped chives on top of the fauxtatoes.
  • Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Warm in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until thoroughly warmed.
