Ground Turkey Chili

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by KMSoprano

A healthier alternative to regular chili. This chili is economical and freezes well. I threw it together with things I already had in my kitchen after ground turkey went on sale at the store.

I used 2 28oz. cans of tomatoes. Added chopped peppers. Added 4 tbsp. butter and increased some spices. I did not puree beans as I forgot. This was an excellent recipe. will make this often.
