What’s For Dinner | Turkey Chili

GGHSnow2014It is still FREEEEEEEEEEEZING here in New England and the last thing I want to be doing is standing in front of the fridge trying to figure out what to make and then spending a bunch of time in the kitchen making it….. I mean that’s a lot of time I could’ve been snuggled under a blanket with this adorable-ness.

So what’s quick, filling, and will keep us warm AND provide yummy leftovers? TURKEY CHILI!! We aren’t big soup people but I love playing around with chili recipes and I’ve found that this our go-to/fave. Super simple, super quick and super YUMMMM.

Girl Gone Healthy’s Turkey Chili:

1 container lean ground white turkey

1 medium onion chopped

1 of each red, yellow, green pepper sliced/chopped

1 medium-sized can of diced tomato {don’t drain}

1 can of green chilies {don’t drain}

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 small can tomato paste

1 medium can of chickpeas drained, rinsed well

1 heaping tablespoon Mrs. Dash southwest/chipotle/chili seasoning whichever you can find at your market

sour cream, shredded cheese, green onions for garnish

Method:

In a large skillet/pan brown coated with cooking spray brown turkey until done, use the minced garlic during this step. While turkey is cooking saute onion and peppers in a small pan until tender, add veggies to turkey once done. Next stir diced tomato, chickpeas, tomato paste, green chilies into turkey pepper pan continually turning mixture over so that it well combined. Lastly stir in Mrs. Dash seasoning and add water if thinning is needed or until desired texture is met. Allow chili to simmer for 15 minutes or so, this will soften the chickpeas a bit and merry all of those flavors together! Ladle 1 cup servings into bowls and top with small dollop of sour cream, little sprinkle of shredded cheese and fresh-cut green onion. Eat Right Away.
