Fast Turkey Chili

The turkey makes this chili lighter and less fatty than beef chili, but it still has plenty of flavor.

Prep time: 60 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Heat a large pot over high heat and add the oil, spreading it so that it evenly coats the bottom of the pot.
  2. When the oil is hot, add the onion, red bell pepper, green pepper, celery, and turkey. Cook, stirring often, until the turkey has lost its pinkness and is cooked through — about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute.
  4. Add the chili powder and cook, stirring continuously, for 1 minute.
  5. Add the tomatoes, beans, oregano, and salt and stir well to combine.
  6. Bring the chili to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add the frozen corn, stir to combine, and cook 10 minutes more.
  8. Serve.
