Drain and add beans, add tomato and combine. Add all seasoning, adjusting to taste. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat. Cook over low heat for at least an hour, adjusting seasoning if needed.

NotesThis chili gets its title because it has a kick that sneaks up on you! It also has a secret... it's good for you! The traditional beef is replaced with lean ground turkey, and I sneak in lots of veggies. If you are a stickler for a traditional bean chili, this one may surprise you; it's really flavorful and worth trying!
