A Healthier Chili

As part of my resolution, I vowed to get back into shape and to eat healthier. It's been cold and blustery in my neck of the woods, which can only mean one thing- Chili Time! I love, love, LOVE my crock pot and good thing to- so does my chili. So, bring out your crock pot, and roll up your selves 'cuz it's chili time!

What you need:
1 Large can of tomato sauce
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
Chili Powder
Garlic Powder
Salt
Pepper
Ground turkey meat
1 large can of Beans
1 large green pepper
1 large red pepper
1 onion
1 frozen bag of mixed vegetables (green beans, carrots, peas and corn mixture)

Now the fun part:
  1. Brown the ground turkey in a frying pan, rinse once cooked fully and put into the crock pot.
  2. Add the 1 large can of sauce. Then fill that can with water and add to the meat sauce mixture.
  3. Pour in the crushed can of tomatoes.
  4. Stir.
  5. Add the beans and frozen bag of mixed veggies. Cut Green and red peppers and onions- hey, toss them on in too!
  6. Stir.
  7. Add salt, pepper, Chili and Garlic powder to taste.
  8. Set on low for 8 hours or high for 6.

Want an extra kick- I always compliment mine with a (small) bed of rice and 2% low fat cheddar cheese.
