Eat Clean- Lean Turkey Chili

I LOVE Chili!  This is a great recipe to make ahead for meal prep day!  I will sometimes add black or pinto beans instead of kidney beans or sometimes I add all three!  

Eat Clean Lean Turkey Chili

1.5 pounds lean, ground turkey
1 medium onion- diced
1 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 cans of Rotel Tomatoes and peppers
1 can of kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
2 Tablespoons 21 Day Fix Smokey Southwestern Seasoning  Get this seasoning recipe
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp olive oil

Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium-high heat and add diced onion and minced garlic.  Cook until the onion is translucent.

Add turkey, stir and cook until no longer pink.

Add tomatoes and beans and chili powder and seasoning mix to the pot.  Stir until well mixed.

Bring to a boil and then simmer for one to three hours, stirring occasionally (the longer this cooks, the better the flavor will develop.. this is a good one to put into the crock pot on low for 4 hours... after you have browned the meat).

Top with chopped green onions, diced avocados, reduced fat sour cream or reduced fat shredded cheese.

Serve with warm corn tortillas.
