In my wonderings though the grocery store I happen to spy 1 lb. of ground turkey on sale for $.99 but it needed to be used or froze by the 10th. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with it but since both my wife and I on doing the Weight Watcher’s thing, I decided to put it in my cart. My first thought was to mix it into some pasta sauce I still had sitting in the pantry for meat sauce. I then pointed the pasta sauce and it was off the charts high, so I rethought what else I could make. My wife suggested Turkey Chili. I liked that idea so that’s what I went with. I searched the web for recipes and combined around 3 of them to come up with this one. Here are most of the ingredients. 1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil 1 lb. Pounds 93/7 Lean Ground Turkey ½ Yellow Onion (Diced) ½ Red Onion (Diced) I Poblano Pepper (Diced) 1 Red Bell Pepper (Diced) 1 ½ Teaspoons Minced Garlic 1 6 Oz. Can Diced Green Chiles 1 15 Oz. Can Corn 1 15 Oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes 1 15 Oz. Can Tomato Sauce 1 15 Oz. Can Chili Beans 1 15 Oz. Can Black Beans 1 15 Oz. Can Dark Red Kidney Beans 1 15 Oz. Cannellini Beans 1 15 Oz. Can Chicken Broth 2 Tbsp. Chili Power 1 Tsp. Cumin ½ Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper ½ Tsp. Chipotle Pepper Power ½ Tsp. Black Pepper ½ Tsp. White Pepper ½ Tsp. Salt ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon I diced up all the onions and peppers, mixed up the spices and got out my enameled Dutch oven. I placed the OO in the D.O. and put it on the side burner of my Gasser. I put the Turkey in once it was heated up. I cooked it until just slightly brown. Next, I added the Poblano pepper, onions, Bell pepper and garlic. I covered this and cook it for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Once the veggies had softened, I added in the rest of the ingredients and mixed everything together. I brought this to a boil and then covered. I turned the burner to low and let the chili simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Here it is after cooking. Here it is in a bowl, garnished with onion, cilantro, some lime and some Non-Fat Greek yogurt. This was delicious and only 3 points per serving. (A serving = 1 cup. This was a large bowl, so it was a double serving so 6 points) Eating like this makes me forget I'm losing weight.
