Ground Turkey Chili

I'm not a big ground turkey fan.  I much prefer ground beef, but this recipe looked good so I went for it.  Start off by sauteing one chopped onion and five minced cloves of garlic in 1T of olive oil.

Add 2lbs of ground turkey after about 3-5 minutes of sauteing the onions and garlic.

While you are browning the turkey (Is it called browning?  It's browning with ground meat, but turkey is more of a white color.  Whiting the turkey?) chop a red bell pepper, 2 jalapenos, and a green bell pepper.

The ground turkey should look like this once browned?  Whited?  Geez.

Dump the rest of the ingredients in:
1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes, no salt added
1 (15oz) can petitie diced tomatoes, no salt added
3T tomato paste
1/2t hot sauce
1 (15oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
The bell peppers and jalapenos
3T chili powder
2t oregano
1/8t cayenne pepper
Let simmer for about an hour.

And there you have it!  I topped ours with green onions because green onions make everything better. 236 calories per cup of chili.  It was very hearty and filling!
