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.
