A healthy turkey chili recipe. Very easy to make (as long as you have a can opener) and it is easy to keep the ingredients on hand. I use as many 'no-salt-added items as I can find) Whenever ground dark-meat turkey goes on sale I buy a bunch of one pound packages to freeze away. Serve this with crackers or tortilla chips.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground turkey. Sprinkle the garlic powder on the turkey meat.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Open all the cans.
  4. Drain and rinse all the beans (this reduces their gas-inducing abilities).
  5. In your largest pot, saute the chopped onions and peppers with the oil until the onions are clear.
  6. Dump all the cans of everything into the big pot.
  7. Cook over medium heat until hot -- stirring occasionally.
  8. Let simmer for at least 10 minutes.
  9. Add turkey meat and stir.
  10. Add chili powder and cinnamin (you can adjust to taste -- I put the spice jars on the table so people can add more).
  11. Serve hot with cheese and crackers and/or tortilla chips.
