Spicy Turkey Peanut Stir-fry

In an effort to use up Christmas leftovers, my next few posts will all feature fun leftovers meals. These are all new recipes for me, and they're quite tasty! Enjoy!
Spicy Turkey Peanut Stir-fry

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 poblano pepper, cut into thin strips
1 cup carrots, julienned
1 tablespoon chili paste
2 tablespoons peanut butter
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons chicken or turkey broth
1 cup cooked turkey (I used breast meat)
4 cups swiss chard
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet, add onion and garlic and saute about 2 or 3 minutes. Add all peppers and carrots and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chili paste, peanut butter, lime and broth and reduce, about 2 minutes. Stir in turkey to heat through and simmer for 4 or 5 minutes. Stir in chard until wilted, about 2 minutes. Finally, top with peanuts and enjoy!
