Healthy and Delicious Turkey Chili
Oh yeah, it's time for me to share another amazing recipe with you! Since we are in the middle of College Football Bowl Season, slaving over the stove while trying to watch the games is not fun. The best way to enjoy the games and a great meal is to cook something that can kind of cook itself... you know what I mean. I have a winning, homemade turkey chili recipe for you.
The best thing about this turkey chili is that it's healthy and extremely flavorful at the same time. Make a big pot of this for your next sports gathering. Everyone will just love it.
You will need:
2 pounds ground turkey
1 large yellow onion- diced
1 green bell pepper- diced
3 cloves garlic- minced
1 can Rotel
1 can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Trappey's jalapeno pinto beans
1 Bay leaf
Salt & Pepper
Crank up a large pot to med-high heat and add your 2 lbs. turkey meat. Crumble with a fork or wooden spoon for bite-size pieces. Drain the grease if you'd like. Then, add your diced onion and bell pepper. Season with 1 Tbsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Let the onions and bell peppers cook for about 8 minutes with the meat. Add the garlic and let cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the can Rotel, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Fill each can with water and pour into pot. Add each one of your seasonings to taste- don't go crazy with the salt because you can always add more later. (I normally add an adequate amount of chili pepper so it tastes like a chili and not tomato sauce.) Let the chili come to a boil and then have it on simmer for about 45 minutes before adding the pinto beans.
Once you add your beans, taste the chili to see if it needs more seasoning. Let it cook for about 30 more minutes. Pour into a big bowl, get some saltine crackers and chow down!
I promise your going to love this chili! Bon Apetit!
