Kris's 25-Minute Tangy Turkey Chili

Submitted by: XANETIA7

Introduction

This is a spin-off of the chili my mom makes! I turned it healthy by subbing turkey for beef and tried to reduce the sodium a bit. Took this to a TOPS holiday potluck and it was a hit!

If you are still concerned about the sodium content, I recommend finding low sodium salsa or omitting the taco seasoning packet all together. Also, using ground turkey breast reduces the already minimal fat content.

Directions

This recipe makes 10 one-cup servings! At around 205 cals and 3.5g fat per pop, it's a healthy and FILLING meal.

1. In a large stock or soup pot, brown the turkey and saute the onion (about 10-12 mins).
2. Add taco seasoning to turkey/onion combo and stir well.
3. Add in remaining ingredients and simmer for about 10 mins.

I recommend serving the chili with 1/4 cup 1% milkfat cottage cheese (instead of sour cream) and a sprinkle of fat-free cheddar. NOTE: I did not include the condiments in the nutritional value.

Add in a serving of your favorite dipping chips and your good to go!

  • I'd also strongly recommend the corn. Any other frozen veggies you have lying around also work: I tossed in a bit of spinach for color. Share with roommates/family: this is WAY too much to eat if you're cooking for one! - 6/18/09

  • This was an amazing recipe! I added a bit of corn...just because I was in the mood for it. AMAZING. It was a hit with the fam and they loved that it wasn't oily and fatty. You are the best. :) - 4/29/09

  • I was one of her TOPS friends and enjoyed the chili she shared with us. I've made it twice since the year began. I used a medium heat salsa.. and an extra can of beans. It has a nice 'kick' and easy to throw together. Thanks for sharing the recipe Xanetia7! - 2/4/09
