  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir for 3 minutes, then add the turkey and stir until crumbly and no longer pink.
  2. Add the butternut squash, chicken stock, green chillies, tomatoes, kidney beans, hominy (or sweetcorn) and passata; season with chilli powder, cumin and garlic salt. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the squash is tender, about 20 minutes.


Tinned chopped green chillies can be purchased online. Alternatively, you could use fresh chillies to taste

If tinned white hominy is unavailable, use regular sweetcorn.
