    1. Mix chilli powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion granules, oregano and cayenne together in a small bowl.
    2. Cook turkey mince in a large nonstick pan over medium heat, stirring to break up clumps, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chilli powder mixture and water. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
    3. Stir cider vinegar and brown sugar into the pan. Simmer until flavours combine, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl.

    Very nice, easy to make and we had it in jacket poatoes. A healthy option for dinner  -  10 Jul 2017


    I needed something quick & easy for a lunch taco salad. This recipe was perfect--I had all the ingredients on hand. My package of turkey was 16 oz vs 12 oz and I omitted the paprika as mine was old. Came out great!  -  28 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe has great flavor. It was VERY spicy, but I also added jalepenos from our garden, and I had to use chipotle powder since I didn't have any regular chili powder on hand. I also sautéed some diced onion along with the turkey and jalepenos, and added a splash of lime juice with the vinegar and brown sugar (only used 1 teaspoon of brown sugar instead of 1 & 1/2).  -  07 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
