Two-Bean Turkey Chilli

Serves: 8  |  Calories per serving: 300

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb. lean, ground turkey
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes (not drained)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, no sugar added, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can kidney or cannellini beans, no sugar added, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lb. frozen corn (optional)
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 (12 oz) jar of your favorite salsa

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, saute’ the garlic and onion in the olive oil.
  2. Stir in the meat and brown, breaking it up as you stir.
  3. Stir in everything else and cook over medium-high heat until the meat is cooked through. Stir frequently to avoid any burning on the bottom of your pot. If you need extra liquid, you can always stir in a little chicken broth to get the consistency you like. But I found that the salsa was enough. Do what suits your tastes.
  4. Allow to cool and serve.
