turkeychiliI’m here again with another feel good recipe. With the “chili” months approaching this will surely warm you up on a cold day, and again, is figure friendly!!

What you need:

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1lb lean ground turkey

1 package (1 ounce) reduced-sodium taco seasoning

1 can corn

1 can (15 ounces) black beans

1 can (15 ounces) northern beans

1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans

1 can (16 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 cans (14.5 ounces) tomatoes w/ chiles

1 small onion

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Low fat shredded cheddar cheese


Spray a 6- to 8-quart pot with nonstick spray. Warm the oil in the pot over medium-high heat. When the oil’s hot, add the onion and brown, then add the ground turkey and cook for 5 minutes, or until it’s no longer pink. Add the taco seasoning and stir until the meat is well coated with the seasoning, add the corn*, beans*, broth, and tomatoes. Season with salt and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Sprinkle some low fat cheddar cheese, instead of a spoon, serve with a side of tortilla chips and enjoy!
