  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 cup canned pureed tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard

  • 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onion and bell pepper in the hot oil until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ground turkey to the skillet; cook and stir until the turkey is completely crumbled and browned, another 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Stir the pureed tomatoes, barbeque sauce, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and chile-garlic sauce into the turkey mixture. Simmer until completely heated, 7 to 10 minutes more.
