Turkey Chili makes a great winter dish. Its not only full of protein from the turkey and the kidney beans but tomatoes have a lot of antioxidants and are a rich source of vitamins A and C - great for anyone suffering from heart disease, diabetes and cancer. I found this recipe originally on all recipes.com. I made it at home because I was looking for something hearty and low fat to eat for dinner and thought I would pass it on. Enjoy!
1.5 TSP of Olive Oil
1 LB of Ground Turkey
1 Large Yellow Onion (chopped)
2 Cups of Water
1 Can of Crushed Tomatoes (28 Oz Can)
1 Can of Kidney Beans - drained and rinsed (16 Oz Can
2 Cloves of Garlic (chopped finely)
2 TBSP of Chili Powder
1/2 TSP of Paprika
1/2 TSP of Dried Oregano
1/2 TSP Ground Cayenne Pepper
1/2 TSP Ground Cumin
Salt and Pepper (as desired)
Heat the olive oil in a pot on the stove on medium heat. Place turkey in the pot and cook until it is evenly brown (about 4-5 minutes)
Stir in Onion and let that continue to cook until the onion becomes soft and tender.
Add water to pot before adding in the rest of the ingredients! Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cover. Let simmer for 30 minutes till sauce is thickened. If sauce hasn't thickened enough remove cover and continue to let simmer until it is.
