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.
