Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray coating. Preheat over high heat.
Add turkey; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Drain fat and discard.
Stir in tomatoes with their juice, green pepper, onion, garlic, oregano, and black pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
