 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    Turkey thighs
    1      cup           Boiling water
   28      ounces        Tomatoes with liquid
    2                    Large onions -- chopped
    3                    Green peppers -- seeded/chopped
    2                    Garlic cloves -- minced
    2      teaspoons     Chili powder -- or more
    1 1/2  teaspoons     Cumin
      1/2  teaspoon      Dried oregano
                         Salt & fresh-ground pepper
      1/4  cup           Extra sharp shredded cheese
 
 Put turkey thighs on a chopping board; slice meat away from the bones. Cut
 meat in 1-inch cubes, discard skin. Spray a non-stick pot (or pressure cooker)
 with cooking spray for no-fat frying. Add cubed meat. Brown over moderate heat
 in its own melted fat (no added oil needed). Remove from flame and stir
 boiling water into juices in pot. Pour liquid into a cup, set aside until fat
 rises to surface. With a bulb-type baster, skim off and discard surface fat.
 Return fat-skimmed liquid to pot. (Bones may be added for flavor and removed
 before serving.) Add all remaining ingredients except cheese.  Cover, simmer
 over low heat until tender, about 1 hour in conventional pot, or 20 minutes in
 pressure cooker. Uncover, continue to simmer until most of the liquid
 evaporates and chili is thick. Top with cheese.
