Ola Amigo, This is one of the easiest and most versatile recipes that you can whip up for you or the whole family. 

 If you want a kick then I recommend using fresh chilis and fresh jalapenos. That will definitely give you the kick you are looking for.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. 

2. In a large pan heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot add the garlic and onions with a pinch of salt. Let this cook for about 2 minutes stirring once or twice. Add the 1 Tablespoon of cumin and 1 Tablespoon of chili powder and stir. 

3. Season the turkey mince with 1 Tablespoon of cumin, 1 Tablespoon of chili powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and few pinches of black pepper. Add this to the pan and break up the turkey mince. Let this cook stirring occasionally until the turkey is cooked.
