Serves 8 - about 1 1/2 cups per serving

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 large poblano chile, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground turkey

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, bell pepper, chile, and garlic, stirring often, 5 to 6 minutes. Add turkey, increase heat to high, and cook, stirring often and breaking meat into chunks, until it's no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes.

occasionally, until flavors are blended, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir in lime juice. If you like, add salt to taste and serve with cheese and cilantro.
