Best Turkey Chili

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by echo echo

A deliciously spicy lower-fat chili. If you like, add 1 cup of chopped celery with the onions and omit the celery seeds from the seasonings (I don't much care for the texture of cooked celery, so I don't do this). For hotter chili (ouch!), don't seed the jalapenos.

Excellent Turkey Chili! It has 6.5 WW points and makes 4 very large servings. I used red and green bell peppers, left the seeds in the jalapeños for heat, used cilantro instead of parsley and the celery in place of the seeds. Oops, almost forgot but I did use the whole can of kidney beans. Awesome flavor. This is a keeper. Thanks echo echo for posting.
