Well I think it depends on what the 15 ingredients are....very rarely would I track something like bell peppers in a recipe like this....I am assuming ground turkey and possibly beans are involved. But I don't think there is a need to track things like herbs and spices.
I do track veggies like tomatoes and mushrooms, olives, etc...especially if its in a salad. But for recipes like this, I might just use the major main ingredients at first with accurate measurements.
I make homemade bean and venison burritos that do have a lot of ingredients. I usually don't worry about the things like green chiles or scallions, but those things usually don't make up the biggest percentage of the calories of the meal anyway.
Remember that on your nutrition tracker you can input groupings, so if you want to sit down and take the time to put in all the ingredients you can then make it a group, name it "turkey chili" or whatever, and then it will be super easy to input that recipe every other time you use it. Getting your favorites and groupings together might take some time at first but I have found it super useful and then it makes it convenient later. It will only be a pain to input it once. Then use the groupings or the favorites after that.
