Posting this for nutrition information and for anyone interested in something a bit different from the usual chili. This does not have much liquid at all; but I am hoping after I read the nutrient info that it has the vitamin and protein count I am looking for. I think it has a very nice taste, and enough spice even without the chili powder. As with all chilis, everything is adjustable; especially the amount of heat you desire. The type of mushroom you choose is also optional; I find the baby portabellos worked nicely. If you try it; hope it works for you.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can kidney beans (save liquid)
- 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 turnip, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 1 fresh beet, chopped
- 1 cup mushroom, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup purple onion, diced
- salt and pepper
