How to Make Turkey Chili
3 lbs ground turkey, or ground turkey breast
2 cans unsalted tomato sauce
2 cans unsalted diced tomatoes
1 bunch of scallions
1 green pepper
chili powder to taste
Morton's lite salt
garlic powder (optional)
2 tbsps barbecue sauce (smoky flavor, (optional)
In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey until 3/4 cooked, stirring occasionally.
While that is browning, chop the green pepper and scallions.
Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer for another 15/20 minutes.
Serve with your favorite crusty bread. Makes a great lunch, or have it for dinner along with a salad.
This recipe is simple, inexpensive, takes very little time, and is very healthy.
My preference is using the ground turkey, as it is not as dry as the ground turkey breast. I also prefer mine without the garlic powder and bbq sauce. Those two items however, do lend a nice twist to the flavor, and it is nice once in a while.
You can also experiment with this recipe. Either take out or add something to your liking, and I'm sure it will be just as tasty. This particular version is my favorite, and I get rave reviews every time I serve it.
So, fellow hubbers, I hope you try it out. Enjoy!
Note: I believe this makes 4-6 servings, but it's been a while since I've made it myself. This recipe can be halved for the first time out, on the off-chance it's not to your liking, then you wouldn't be wasting too much food :)
