  1. In a small bowl, mix together the chilli powder, cumin, paprika, salt, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne. Set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick pan, cook the turkey over a medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon, until it's no longer pink.
  3. Sprinkle the turkey with the seasoning mix and add 120ml water. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has absorbed. Stir in the vinegar and sugar and continue to simmer for a couple of minutes until warmed through.
