ROTW: Lean Turkey Chili

Nothing like a nice bowl of yummy good ol Chili without the extra side of guilt and 1000 calories! This slow cook is deelish and great for the entire family. It’s lean, filling and great with any complex carb. Enjoy!

Total time: 1 hour- 1hr 15 min
*slow cook over low to medium heat*

Need:
1 package of lean, hormone free Ground Turkey
1 can of black beans
1 can of pinto beans
1/2 can of corn
1 tbsp of tomato paste
1 cup of diced tomatoes ( I like them chunkier)
1 organic carrot
1/4 red onion chopped
3 bay leaves
1/4 cup of fresh parsley or more if you’d like
1 teaspoon chili powder ( if you like spicier add more)
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 tbsp pepper
1 tbsp of dried oregano
1 teaspoon of ground allspice seasoning
1 1/2 tbsp chopped garlic ( more if you’d like)
Himalayan salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil

In a medium pot pour olive oil, red onion, chopped garlic and bay leaves to cook. Let cook until onion is translucent.

Lower heat!! Add parsley, oregano, pepper, ground all spice, chili powder, paprika , tomato paste, diced tomatoes and carrots
Let cook for 13-15 min with cover on LOW heat

Add black beans , pinto beans and corn. Let cook 13-15 min with cover on low heat.

Meanwhile use frying pan to cook turkey until it browns but do not let it thoroughly cook. Throw away excess grease and juice the turkey releases.

After the 10 minutes have passed with the beans being added add turkey and salt to taste. Cover and let sit 20-25 minutes until desired consistency
