An easy to fix chili using left over turkey and handy ingredients. I tweaked a weight watcher's recipe for this. If you want the results more soupy, add more water. Can use masa harina to thicken if desired.

  1. Heat olive oil.
  2. Saute onion and pepper until onion starts to turn translucent.
  3. Add all other ingredients, except lime juice.

  5. Add salt and chili powder or pepper to taste.
  6. Stir in lime juice.

Enjoyed this seeing it was a good night to cook this...damp and rainy. I did leave out the black olives, used some northern beans that I had on hand, and subbed green peppers for the yellow peppers. Very flavorful chili, and with some potato stuffing.

Delicious quick and easy chili. I used left over ground turkey. I also left out the olives mainly because I didn't notice I needed them, and didn't have any in stock. I used red and white kidney beans as that was what I had on hand and skipped the cilantro since I don't care for that herb. Made for Potluck Tag.

We really enjoyed this. Left out the olives I'm not a big fan. Easy to make and quick. Posted for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks.
