Turkey Chili

Turkey Chili
Adapted From Shape Magazine


-1 tablespoon olive oil
-2 large clove garlic, smashed
-1/2 cup chopped scallions (green onions)
-1 pound ground turkey
-2 tablespoons chili powder
-1 large can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
-(I also added one small can of V-8 juice for extra liquid or tomato juice)
-1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
-1 medium red bell pepper, diced
-1 cup carrot, diced
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-salt to taste
**You can add 1/2 cup Shirley J Cream soup base with 1 1/2 cups water**


*In a large saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Toss in garlic and all but 2 tablespoons of the scallions and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.

*Add turkey and continue to cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cook for 1 more minute. Add tomatoes, kidney beans, bell pepper, carrot, brown sugar, and salt to taste. Bring to a boil over high heat.

*Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Divide among 4 bowls and garnish with the remaining 2 tablespoons of scallions. Top with nonfat sour cream if desired. (I also served the Chili with Organic Corn Tortilla Chips, Kirkland brand from Costco)
