Vegetable or Turkey Chili Recipe

Last month for our Girlfriends’ Dinner Susan (member of the studio) made this wonderful healthy Turkey Chili.  Here’s the recipe & enjoy!  It is so easy!

3 cans (15oz.) kidney beans, drained

3 cans (15oz.) pinto beans, drained

2 cans (28 oz.) whole tomatoes in juice

2 (½*) medium onions, diced (½ onion to be cooked with meat)

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

½ celery stalk, diced  (use half of this when cooking turkey)

3 garlic cloves minced or pressed

*1 ½   tsp. salt (sea salt or Kosher salt taste best) – use ½ tsp salt when cooking turkey.  Use *1 tsp salt in the crock-pot with the rest of the ingredients.

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tsp. ground cumin

4 – 8 T. of chili powder (season to taste)

1.5 lbs. of ground turkey, fried with diced celery, ½ tsp of salt and set aside.  (I fry the ground turkey in Pam and one teaspoon of olive oil.)

Put all ingredients in Crock-pot and stir to mix.  Cook on high 1.5 hours, stir, then reduce to low and cook for another 4-5 hours.

*Add fried ground turkey or lean ground beef about one and ½  hours before serving.

*Large crock-pot is needed (7 quart?)

*Add other vegetables to your taste such as zucchini or yellow squash.
