i'm all about the quick and easy. this turkey chili recipe from prevention magazine caught my eye for several reasons: speedy (duh!), no complicated ingredients, made use of avocado and greek yogurt, both of which i have an overabundance of at the moment.
the cool yogurt and avocado complemented the warm chili perfectly. and, of course, no chili is complete without cornbread! this jiffy corn muffin mix makes mini muffins in 10 minutes. all together a simple and fast meal that you can prep and get on the table in less than 45 minutes.
i tweaked the recipe using what i had on hand.
you can find the original recipe here.
speedy turkey chili
1 chopped onion
6 chopped red sweet mini peppers (like these)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground turkey
1 Tbsp olive oil
*saute in big pot until turkey browns.
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
*add seasonings and stir.
1 qt low sodium beef broth
1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 oz) can crushed tomatoes
*add remaining ingredients and cook 30 minutes.
plain greek yogurt
*serve over rice with dollop of yogurt, avocado,
and tortilla chips.
(original recipe called for only 1/2 lb of ground turkey and 1 qt of broth. i normally use 1 lb of meat for my family, so i used the whole tray of ground turkey (about 1.25 lbs). the full qt of broth gave it a soupy consistency, which is fine, but you could probably get away with using much less.)
