Saturday Dinner: Beanless Turkey Chili

In continuation of my weekend of recipes, I bring you my hubby’s beanless turkey chili recipe!  I have never been much of a bean fan, so he cooks it sans-beans just for me!!


What you need:

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

5 heaping tablespoons of minced garlic

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 tablespoon Mrs Dash Extra Spicy

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1 – 2 fresh jalapeno peppers diced

1 pound ground turkey

1 bottle Mexican beer (he used Dos Equis)

1 can whole peeled diced tomatoes, with their juice

Brown the turkey on the stove.  While the turkey is cooking, put the remaining ingredients in the crock-pot.  Once the raw color is completely gone from the turkey, add it to the crock-pot.  Cook on high for 4 hours.  Serves 4.

We like to add low-fat shredded cheese and non-fat sour cream to our bowls.  I made up some cheesy garlic biscuits to go with the chili.  It was super delish!
