Simple Turkey Chili

Saute 2 cups chopped onions, 3 diced garlic cloves and ½ large chopped bell pepper until soft in olive oil – about 5-7 minutes (stirring occasionally).

Add 1 lb ground turkey meat and brown.

Add 1 28oz can diced tomatoes

Add 6-8oz of canned marinara

(All spices to taste)

Add 3 Tsp chili powder

Add 2 tsp oregano

Add 1tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper


On medium heat, stir in big pot to mix - about 5-7 minutes (stirring occasionally).

Choose hot sauce to add at the end for extra flavor and heat. Pour in amount to taste.

Stir, simmer on low for another 20-25 minutes – depending on how thick you would like it to be when it reduces.  And then serve topped with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro.
