Turkey Chili – 21 Day Fix Extreme approved

Yesterday was a cold, rainy day so I decided to make some Chili.  I am not a fan of the cold and love to cook this Chili recipe on cold and snowy winter days! If you like your Chili saucy like I do, you may want to add in some tomato paste. However, I’m not sure how that affects the 21 Day Fix container equivalents.
Ingredients
1 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 medium onion
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste; optional)
2 (15 oz) cans black beans (or pinto beans) drained, rinsed
1 (15 oz) can all-natural diced tomatoes, no sugar added
12 fresh cilantro sprigs, finely chopped (for garnish; optional)
Directions
  1. Heat oil in large sauce pan over medium-high heat
  2. Add turkey, onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink
  3. Add cumin, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute
  4. Add beans and tomatoes (with liquid). Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low; gently bio, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until thickened.
  5. Serve warm, sprinkle with cilantro.
Container Equivalents
1/2 Green
1 Red
1/2 Yellow
This is a great recipe for CROCKPOTS…or you can make ahead of time and place in a freezer ziplock bag (gallon size after it’s cooled) and freeze for later…great for meal prep!
