  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. To make turkey seasoning, in a small bowl, mix together chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and cayenne; set aside.
  3. Place turkey in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook, breaking apart meat with back of spoon, until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle turkey with seasoning mixture and stir in water; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of liquid is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. Stir in vinegar and sugar; simmer 2-3 minutes more.
  4. Arrange pepper halves, cut-side up, in a single layer on prepared pan.
  5. Evenly divide turkey mixture among peppers and sprinkle with cheese; top with jalapeno slices, if using.
  6. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven; top with olives, sour cream and cilantro. Serve immediately.
  8. Serving size: 7 nachos
