Really yummy, healthy and rather cheap to make. My husband and daughter love this recipe. It is a spin off of the traditional chicken and rice. I listed portions for serving of 8(food for 2 days), but you can cut down if needed.

If you like spicy food, you'll love this. Purchase corn muffins from your supermarket bakery to round out the meal.

This soup is so hearty and satsifying, with unique flavors inspired by Keema (an Indian casserole). It makes 8 very hearty servings and is really delicious with naan bread.

If you prefer a vegetarian soup, simply omit the ground turkey.

aj's (South Beach) Turkey Chili
(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This is my take on the South Beach Diet Turkey Chili (Phase 1). I usually serve with a tablespoon of fat free sour cream on top and a small handful of sharp cheddar cheese (not included in nutrition info).
