Wednesday Wellness: Healthy Recipe

Healthy Turkey Chili
I made this last night during the cold and wintery mix we were having here in Maryland.  It was a perfect night for something warm!  The chili was delicious, yet healthy, so I didn't feel bad eating it!

2 pounds lean ground turkey (I used one pkg ~1.3 lbs)
2 cans diced tomatoes, low sodium
8 oz can tomato sauce, low sodium
2 cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained, low sodium
1 green pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
low fat cheddar cheese (optional)

1.  Brown turkey in pan and place in crock pot.
2.  Add rest of ingredients (except cheese) to crock pot.
3.  Cook on high heat for 4 hours or low heat for 8 hours.
4.  Top with cheese, if you prefer.
