Turkey Chili

We eat ground turkey pretty often. It's a little bit more expensive, but it's good for you! I made turkey chili last weekend and thought I'd share. It doesn't really look like traditional chili -- it's more like a chili/vegetable soup hybrid. Regardless, it's pretty healthful and delicious!

Turkey Chili

1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic (3 cloves)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cans Rotel* (yes, I put Rotel in everything)
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp hot sauce (optional)
1 can black beans
1 can whole kernel corn
4 cups chicken broth (I use Knorr powder and water.)
salt & pepper

*or 2 cans diced tomatoes (for less spicy chili)

Brown the ground turkey with onion, garlic, and bell pepper. Drain if desired. Add tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and hot sauce. Saute for 5 more minutes on medium. Add black beans, corn, and chicken broth. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes. Add broth if you want chili with more liquid. We tend to like ours chunky, so I usually don't add much more unless I cook it for a while.

I hope you like!
