Very good basic! Always make it your own!, Member Oggie69

I used half white meat turkey and half 93% ground beef (that's all the turkey I had.) A clove of garlic was smashed and sauteed with the onions. A large can of crushed tomatoes and a can of Rotel is what I chose. Beer added a good flavor. Fat free cheddar and a dollop of fat free sour cream on top, yum! Nice and lean and just delicious! I loved it! (Heart healthy enough for my hubby!)
