Turkey Chili

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. extra-lean ground beef, or ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp. fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz.) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1⁄4 cup canned diced green chiles, or 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Cook ground beef or turkey and garlic in a nonstick skillet, breaking apart the meat, until well browned. Drain off any fat very well, then return to the pan.
  2. Add bell peppers and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cumin.
  3. Place tomatoes, kidney beans, onion, chilies or jalapeno, tomato paste, and meat mixture in a slow-cooker and stir to combine.
  4. Cover and cook on high until flavors are blended, about 4-5 hours. Season to taste with black pepper.
