Add olive oil to Dutch oven or similar pot. This ingredient is particularly important when using turkey or chicken, due to the lower fat content of these meats.
Add ground meat and cook over medium heat until no longer pink, stirring to prevent sticking.
Add onion and continue cooking until the onion is translucent and soft, stirring often.
Add soup, tomatoes and green chilies, beans, chili powder, and garlic. I did add a bit of water, from rinsing out the cans. Stir to mix.
Simmer approximately 20 minutes until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Serve topped with shredded cheese if desired.
This is good served with a green salad and/or corn bread.
Note: The spiciness of the chili powder increases over time. So if made the night before keep this in mind.
