Chop all vegetables into very small pieces. Heat a large pot and add onion and veggies. Add a couple splashes of water so they do not stick. Cook until onions are translucent; add small amount of water if veggies start to stick. Add turkey and cook until no longer pink, about 6-7 minutes. Add tomatoes, ¾ cup of water and spices. Simmer another 10-15 minutes, reducing liquid.
