Yesterday I didn't know what I wanted to eat so I decided to throw together some chili! Brandy told me how good it smelled while it was in the crock pot -- I knew it was going to be good! And it's even better today!
1 can black beans - drained, rinsed
1 can dark red kidney beans - drained, rinsed
1 can chickpeas - drained, rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes w/green chiles
1 can tomato paste
1 package lean ground turkey (about a pound), 93/7
2 cups water
Emeril's Original Essence
Brown the turkey in a frying pan. I usually add a little Emeril's Original Essence to the turkey. Combine all ingredients in the crock pot. Add Cumin, Chili Powder, & Emeril's Original Essence to taste (I like my chili a little spicy). Let cook for 3-4 hours.
You can top your bowl of chili with a little reduced fat shredded cheese (which I did in the picture above) - or some fat free sour cream if you like.
