I love chili in the winter time but not the pounds it packs on. One of my good friends, Jaime is a great baker and cook. Recently she came up with an awesome turkey chili recipe that is a great alternative. It doesn’t even taste like your missing out on the original. I charmed her enough to get her to share it. She loves me.
What you need:
2-4 Cloves of Garlic (Depending on preference)
1/2 of a Medium Sized Onion
1.3 LB of Ground Turkey
1 Can of Rotel
2 Cans of Your Favorite Type of Beans
2 Tbsp of Tomato Paste
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
Dash of Chili Powder
Dash Red Pepper Flakes
First cook the turkey through until it’s mostly browned. Then dice the garlic and onion and add it to the turkey. Once the onions seemed cooked (when they start to become translucent) add the can of Rotel. After that drain and rinse your beans and add them to the turkey. I only use two cans of black beans because I’m not the biggest fan of beans but you can use more than that. Also add the tomato paste in then as well. After that mix in your seasonings. You can season it however you like. I added the Cocoa Powder, Chili Powder and Red Pepper flakes.
After it’s finished I add greek yogurt instead of sour cream and layer it on top of some quinoa instead of rice. I promise you it’s just as good but guilt-free so even better!
