Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Turkey Taco Chili

It’s no secret that beans are good for you. Low in fat and high in fiber, they are an excellent addition to any diet! Try this twist on an old bean favorite: chili! For those who don’t like beef, use ground turkey or chicken breast for a low-fat change. Recipe easily adaptable to your taste; here’s the base- get creative!

 

  • 1 package ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1- 19 oz can black beans
  • 1- 19 oz can mixed beans
  • 1- 7 oz can corn niblets
  • 1- 19 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 package low sodium taco seasoning

Brown turkey meat, adding chopped onion part way through so onion is softened. Add rest of ingredients and let simmer 30-45 minutes.

Serve immediately with couple tablespoons of low-fat sour cream or low-fat grated cheese, if desired.

Also an easy meal to package for lunch the next day!
