Turkey Chili - Warm, Healthy, Easy, & Delicious

This is such and easy and tasty recipe! Great to double or triple and freeze too!

4-6 servings
This tasty chili recipe is as easy as it gets!
·         1 tablespoon olive oil
·         1 small onion, chopped
·         1 pound ground turkey (I used 97% lean)
·         4-5 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (or one store-bought packet); recipe for making your own taco mix at
·         1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes (fire-roasted recommended) – I like to use fresh diced tomatoes and add a little salt
·         2 tablespoons tomato paste
·         1 ½ cups of dry pinto beans fully cooked or 1 (15 oz) can pinto beans
·         3-4 green chilies, diced seeds removed or 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies
·         1 1/2 cups of organic chicken broth
·         salt to taste
Add olive oil to large pot over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Add turkey and cook until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles as it cooks. Sprinkle on taco seasoning mix and stir to coat turkey thoroughly; cook for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and stir; then add diced tomatoes, beans, green chiles, and 1 cup of chicken broth. Stir. Add more chicken broth, if needed, to reach desired consistency (thick or brothy--your choice). Heat through and simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt to taste. Want it spicier? Add a dash of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes.
Optional toppings: low-fat shredded cheese, fat-free sour cream, chopped onions, chopped cilantro, goldfish
