Suggestions: For best results, add your own homemade salsa, or if purchasing it, select low-sodium, organic salsa.

Serves: 8 person(s)

Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 45 mins

Ingredients:

    1 Tbsp olive or canola oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    0.45 kg lean ground turkey (white meat, such as breast)
    2 Tbsp chili powder
    1 (32 oz) jar of salsa (homemade, or low-sodium organic)
    1 (10.5 oz) can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (10.5 oz) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained

Directions:

    In a frying pan, add olive oil and sauté garlic. Add turkey meat and cook through.

    Add chili powder and mix to coat the turkey meat, adding water if necessary. (This step is much like making taco meat. Turkey breast meat is flavorless and this adds a bit of flavor.)

    Once the chili is incorporated into the turkey meat, add salsa. Add and mix in the drained, rinsed beans.

    Cook until it thickens (usually about 45 minutes).

Variations:

    Can top with low-fat shredded cheese. And, if you'd like to add a little kick and your salsa isn't too hot, add some jalapeño peppers.

    For nachos, serve on baked corn tortilla chips.
