- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 15.8-oz. can black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
- 1 11-oz. can corn, drained
- 1 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula, until no longer pink. Drain fat and return to heat. Add spices and water and mix until well combined. Cook until water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add cooked meat to a large serving bowl to cool a bit.
To the cooled meat, add the black eyed peas, corn, green pepper, red onion, tomatoes, jalapenos and garlic.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients. Toss the meat/veggie mixture with the dressing until well combined. Serve immediately on a platter or as an appetizer with tortilla chips.
