Ingredients

1 pound lean ground turkey, extra lean*
1 small onion, chopped
1 whole bell pepper, chopped, (red, orange and yellow look nice)
1 tablespoon jalapeno, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can kidney beans, canned, rinsed and drained
1 cans pinto beans, canned, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, canned, rinsed and drained
24 ounces salsa (hot to taste)
2-3 tablespoons chili powder
6 ounces tomato juice


Brown ground turkey with onions, peppers and jalapeno, stirring occasionally. Add 2-3 tablespoons of chili powder. Add garlic when turkey is almost done. Add beans and stir in 1 24-ounce jar of the salsa of your preference. If the mixture seems a little dry, add tomato juice. Taste and adjust salt and pepper, other spices.


*Be careful when buying ground turkey. Some it has added fat making it just as fatty as ground beef.

Notes

One of the many wonderful things about chili is how easily you can change out ingredients. I set out to make a turkey chili and decided to jazz it up by using a variety of beans as well. This version is the fire-alarm version but you can easily switch out all or part of the salsa with diced tomatoes. I use my own chili powder blend - which is pretty hot - but commercially there are a variety of blends suitable to every taste.
