1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2-1/2 cups turkey or chicken stock

salt, pepper, dried oregano, dried thyme & 1-1/2 tsp ea of paprika,

pepper & jalapeno, stirring often, until soft, (abt 6-8 min). Add

Sprinkle flour over turkey & veggies; mix well. Cook for 4-5 min,

stock-beer mix, stirring. (It will seize up at first, then, as more
stock is added & stired, will form a silky sauce for turkey). Add
tomatoes; cook until mix thickens, abt 3-5 min. Pour filling into a 2-qt
casserole or, individual ramekins, if desired. (pillsbury pie crusts)
Bake @ 400°F for 25 min, or until pastry is golden & filling is
bubbling. Let cool for at least 5 min before serving.
