 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cans          diced green chiles -- 7 oz each
    1      pound         turkey -- finely ground
    1      small         zucchini -- thinly sliced
    1      cup           frozen corn kernels
   14      ounces        canned peeled tomatoes -- with juice
   24      ounces        water
    6      cloves        garlic -- minced
    1      teaspoon      ground cumin
    1      teaspoon      italian seasoning
    1      teaspoon      salt
 
 1.  Brown the ground turkey. Just before it is done, add the garlic and saute i
 t with the meat. Then put this into a large saucepan or dutch oven.  I did not 
 drain the fat off - i think this is part of what made it taste so good.  Beside
 s, if it weren't a bit greasy, it wouldn't be authentic.  :) 
 
 2.  Turn on heat to medium high and add tomatoes + juice.  use a spatula or som
 ething to cut up the tomatoes in the pan. then add the rest of the vegetables, 
 the chiles, the water, and the seasoning. 
 
 3.  Bring to a boil, then turn heat down and cook until zucchini becomes soft. 
  Spoon into bowls and eat as with many things, this is also better the next day

 NOTES : i've been working on creating a good green chili stew for a while now. 
  i finally did it!  it turned out great!  this was inspired by some that i had 
 last Christmas at Jemez Pueblo.  it is a traditional new mexican dish.  I make 
 no bones about this being full of fat and salt
