    one 16 oz can black beans
    one 16 oz can pinto beans
    note: you can also use ranch style beans
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1lb ground turkey
    1 diced onion
    2-3 minced garlic cloves
    32oz stewed tomatoes
    1 bottle beer (good enough to drink)
    note: best with beer but you can do it just with water
    chili powder to taste
    ground cumin to taste
    1 tsp dried oregano
    a couple of chopped carrots
    1/2 cup diced bell pepper
    or anything else you want to add. this recipe pretty much changes every time I make it.


saute all vegetables in oil for a few minutes. add turkey and brown; drain. add drained and rinsed beans, stewed tomatoes, beer and spices. bring to a boil then turn it down to a simmer. I like it best when it's simmered for at least 45 minutes, but you can do it more or less as you please. add a little water if it gets too thick while simmering. note: break up the tomotoes a bit as they cook with the back of your spoon unless you like really chunky tomatoes in your chili. add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!.
serving options... a dollup of low-fat sour cream, a sprinkling of raw chopped onions and/or sharp cheddar cheese, and saltines or cornbread on the side.
