Clean Eating Turkey Chilli

This is one of my go to busy working mother and wife recipes! Only takes minutes to make. Makes enough for the family. You can even freeze and save for later.

Turkey and Bean Chili
Serves 6

1 cup chopped white onions
4 small garlic cloves
1 pound lean ground turkey breast (99% fat free)
Garlic Salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 15-ounce Red Kidney beans
1 15-ounce can black beans
1 10-ounce can tomato puree
1 14.5-ounce can diced zesty chilli tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
Chop the onion and mince the garlic.  Add the turkey to a large pot with the onion and garlic.  Continue to cook on medium-high heat until the turkey is no longer pink.  Add your spices to the turkey mixture so that they can release their natural oils (chili powder, crushed red pepper, coriander, cumin, and season with a little bit of garlic salt.  Allow to cook for about 1 minute or so.  Drain and rinse your beans.  Add them to the pot along with the diced tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato puree.  Allow mixture to come to a boil then reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes.

You can also put on top of brown rice if you like.
