*This recipe originally called for beef but even with using ground sirlon it was cal 38.9% from fat. Now by using the ground turkey it brought it way down to 25⅒%.
*This recipe originally calls for the regular Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with green chiles and Ranch Style Beans. This is very spicy! For a milder version you can use the mild Ro-Tel (or even regular diced canned tomatoes) and canned Pinto Beans.
