Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large (cast iron) skillet over medium-high brown the ground turkey, onion, and garlic. Break up meat using a wooden spoon; season with salt and black pepper. Sauté about 5 minutes and add bell pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes more.

Step 3

Add tomatoes and chipotle; bring to a boil and simmer until warmed through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro and top with grated cheese.

Step 4

Cover, turn off heat and let sit until cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 5

Garnish with avocado and more cilantro. Serve with sour cream, if desired.
