Turkey Chili Recipe

Turkey Chili
1 cup = 200 calories

1 lb 97% lean ground turkey (you can use 97% lean ground beef instead)
1 can diced tomatos
1 can Ranch Style beans
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 package of chili seasoning

Next time I'm going to leave out the Northern Beans. Not my favorite bean and the chili was a little too bean heavy.

 Make SURE you use 97/3 turkey or ground beef. If you use anything less you might as well eat a cheeseburger (I'm being a bit dramatic, but don't short yourself on lean protein).

Brown the turkey. It will turn white as you cook it, that's normal. Add a chopped onion at this point if you like onion.
 Add all the other ingredients to a big pot and cook on medium until it boils. Turn down the heat and simmer until dinner time. Cook the rice separately.

Layer a little rice, one cup of chili (use a measuring cup), a little cheese and crackers if you can afford the extra calories.
This is super yummy! Add your favorite hot sauce if you like a little heat!
