    Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey, 16 oz
    water, 2 cups
    Onions, raw, 1 small, chopped
    Tomato Sauce, 1 cup
    Vinegar, 1 tbsp
    Worchestershire Sauce, 1 tsp
    Garlic, 1 clove, chopped
    Dove Dark Chocolate Hearts, 2 pieces
    *Beans, Kidney beans dark red, 1 can, drained
    chili powder, 2 tbsp
    salt, 3/4 tsp
    cumin, 1/2 tsp
    cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
    cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp
    cloves, 2 whole
    ginger, 1/4 tsp
    nutmet, 1/4 tsp


Day ahead: Put the ground turkey in a large pot; cover with 2 cups of water and boil about 30 minutes, stirring the meat and breaking it up to make it a fine texture. Cool and refrigerate overnight.

Next day: strain off any fat from the top and discard. Add all other ingredients and cook on low for about 3 hours.

You should serve this over spaghetti and top with some cheese and onions for "authentic" cincinnai chili. These ingredients are not included in the calorie count, so be sure to add whatever else you have with the chili. I will have it over a small serving of whole wheat spaghetti and top with about a half ounce of mozzarella cheese (much lighter than the usual 1/2 lb. of cheddar!!)

Serving Size: Makes 5 servings
