My favorite Chili Recipe..

As the fall settles in, I find myself wanting more hearty meals, and this chili always hits the spot and is a popular choice for my family.

2 - 2.5 pounds of ground turkey, any ground meat will do, I just prefer to use turkey
2 medium onions
3 bell peppers, any color
2 16oz. cans of kidney beans
1 16oz can diced tomatoes
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes..  (any combo between diced & crushed works)
2 packets of chili seasoning

(I also threw in a few fresh tomatoes )

As always when I cook, especially something like chili, I make extra for lunches for the week, or to freeze..

Dice up your onions and peppers..  begin to saute over medium heat.
Add your ground meat when vegetables begin to soften

cook until meat is browned.

drain/rinse meat/vegetables ( I always put my meat in a strainer and rinse with water to reduce the fat content)

place back in large pot.  Add tomatoes, beans and chili seasoning.  Simmer over medium heat for 45 minutes or so...

And that's that!!  Enjoy!

My family loves to have this with Jiffy corn muffins..   Depending on how many yellow containers I have left, I may or may not have one too :P

I would count this as red/green/yellow containers depending on how large of a serving I have.  Generally if I eat about a 1.5 - 2 cup serving I would count it as a red, green and yellow.
