Note: You can definitely make this without the turkey and save 65 calories per serving and make it vegetarian. It also takes one of the meats out of the exchanges so this is something to consider!

Also, if you don’t have pinto beans, use black beans or kidney beans. They work, too!

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
