Turkey Chili

Welcome back to the blog!  I took the summer off to be with the kid, and now I'm back with some Autumn goodness.  Today we're going to explore the wonderful world of Chili, beginning with a low-fat and high-flavor option that will keep them filling their bowls!

1 1/4lb lean ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can corn
2 bell peppers, 1 red 1 green
1 (28oz) can of crushed tomatoes
1 (8oz) can of tomato sauce
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 package of chili seasoning
Top with shredded cheese and diced red onion

Cook the turkey, chopped onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until the turkey crumbles and is no longer pink.  Drain and relocate to the crock pot.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well mixed.  Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours.

 I served with:
Cornbread.  Ain't nuthin' wrong with that!

 Jess' Grade: A+

You can't beat good chili on a cold night, and this recipe is sure to help you warm up from the inside out!  Spice it to your taste, it is pretty tame in it's completed form.  But the flavor is second to none, and sure to please your guests.  Feel free to send me suggestions or questions, I am always open to your emails!

Happy cooking!
