 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         ground turkey or ground top round
    1      cup           onion -- diced
    1      clove         garlic -- minced
    1 1/2  teaspoons     chili powder
    1      teaspoon      oregano
      1/2  cup           tomato sauce
      1/2  cup           green chiles -- diced
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
 
 Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the turkey or ground round and
 sear over medium heat until browned, without stirring, about 5-6 minutes.
 (If using beef, pour off all fat.)  Add the onion, garlic, chili powder and
 oregano and stir to break up clumps of meat.  Saute until the onion s fully
 cooked, about 3-4 minutes.  Lower the heat to medium-low and stir in the
 tomato sauce and chiles.  Simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated,
 about 5-8 minutes.  Add salt and pepper.  Fills 8 tacos or 8 enchiladas.
