Spanish Turkey and Pinto Bean Stew

 On cold days I just want a warm bowl of comforting soup, stew, yummy pasta anything that will go in a bowl and make my tummy happy!  Tonight's stew had a Spanish flare and was super delicious.  The best part was that it was easy to put together and I had everything on hand, eliminating having to go to the store. 

The stew was hearty and had great flavor.  It is one that must go on the rotation.
