Foodie Post: Healthy Turkey Chili


I figured tonight was a good night to make a healthy turkey chili with the nice chilly weather outside.

The result was pretty yummy and guiltless!  Here's the recipe I used (with my modifications):


  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 cup white Onion, Diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-½ pound Ground Turkey Breast
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Diced Tomatoes, Mexican style
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Diced Tomatoes, fire roasted style
  • 2 cans (15 0z. Can) Tomato Sauce
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Can) Black Beans, Rinsed And Drained
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Can) Kidney Beans, Rinsed and Drained
  • 3 Tablespoons Chili Powder (more To Taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin (more To Taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Chipotle Tabasco
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic and crushed red pepper seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons seasoning salt
  • 1 small can of diced green chiles
  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper

1. Warm extra virgin olive oil in a deep stock pot over medium-high heat. Add diced onion and garlic; saute until tender.

2. Add ground turkey breast; season with salt, pepper and chipotle Tabasco and cook through, about 6 minutes.

3. Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chiles and beans.

4. Add chili powder, crushed red pepper, seasoning salt and cumin to taste.

5. Reduce heat to medium-low.

6. Simmer 10-15 minutes.

The whole process was quick and tasty.  It's smoky spicy. Enjoy!  Adjust the seasonings to your tastes!
