I love that this recipe features ground turkey and black beans! Full of protein and goodness. We love it in our family. Have it a lot in the cooler months and winter. This also include the recipe for the cornbread. Hope you like it too. It is a Sandra Lee recipe. From her show semi-homeade cooking circa 2002.
