Sloppy Joe Mix

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 14 ounces tomato sauce

  • Stir in the garlic powder, water, tomato paste, and tomato sauce. Stir until mixed well. Turn heat down to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
