  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • about 1/2 cup chopped celery and green pepper (optional)
  • 1 jar meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 16 oz can chili beans
  • 16 oz can pinto beans
  • 16 oz can kidney beans
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • About 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a large pan cook ground turkey, onion, celery and green pepper until the meat is no longer pink. Drain any excess fluid from the pan and add the mixture to a 5 quart slow cooker. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT pinto and kidney beans and turn slow cooker on low for 6 hours.

Add pinto and kidney beans and cook on low for another 30 minutes.

Top with cheese or sour cream. (optional)

To keep it healthy I usually add weight watchers shredded cheese and plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Plain yogurt adds the same tartness as sour cream and is a much healthier option.

Enjoy!
