Easy Turkey No-Bean Chili

Recipe by wheezard

This is a great recipe I came up with using just stuff we had on hand. You can eat it straight out of a bowl with cheese, onions and sour cream. Or you can top turkey hot dogs to make filling chili dogs. My husband loved it left over on hamburger buns - a la' sloppy joes! Keeps well, and freezes too.

In place of the bay leaf, chili powder, chipotle chile in adobo, dried basil & cajun seasoning, I used 1 packet of Lawry's chili seasoning. I also added 1 diced green bell pepper and 1/2 a jalapeno, diced. Turned out fantastic!!!
