Turkey Chili

Submitted by: EROSMITH

Introduction

I love that this chili doesn't have beans in it - I don't like kidney beans!! This is a great recipe to make up and divide into 4 containers for lunches (I usually double it and make 8 servings).

Ingredients

    1 lb. lean ground turkey
    salt
    pepper
    1 cup peeled grated carrot
    2/3 cup chopped onion
    2/3 cup chopped celery
    1 clove garlic (minced)
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1/8 tsp cayenne
    1 can (14 1/2oz) chopped plum tomato in juice
    1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
    1 bay leaf

Directions

Heat a 3 quart nonstick saucepan over high heat and coat with cooking spray. Add the turkey, season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, breaking up the turkey into pieces, until browned. Remove to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.
Reduce the heat to low, add carrot, onion, celery and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the chili powder, paprika, cumin and cayenne. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Increase the heat to medium and add the tomato, chicken broth and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, covered.
Add the browned turkey and simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf before serving.
