- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in the oil, then add the onion, garlic, and jalapeño. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the chili powder and oregano, and cook 1 minute more. Add the turkey and corn, and cook until the mixture is nearly dry, about 4 minutes. Stir in the salsa and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and the turkey is cooked through, 4–5 minutes longer. Spoon over the opened rolls and serve.
