    You can easily modify a regular chili recipe. Just use EXTRA LEAN ground turkey. When you see "lean ground turkey" it's usually just as fattening as ground beef. So, look for the EXTRA lean. Then make your chili as usual. If you don't have a recipe, here is one I"ve tried that I love!

    INGREDIENTS

    * 2 pounds extra lean ground turkey
    * 1 (46 fluid ounce) can tomato juice
    * 1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
    * 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    * 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    * 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
    * 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
    * 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
    * 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    * 1/4 cup chili powder



    DIRECTIONS

    1. Place ground turkey in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
    2. In a large pot over high heat combine the ground turkey, tomato juice, tomato sauce, kidney beans, pinto beans, onions, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, sugar, oregano, ground black pepper, salt, cumin and chili powder. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. (Note: If using a slow cooker, set on low, add ingredients, and cook for 8 to 10 hours.)

    Welcome!

    warning though, I don't know if you're used to eating the extra lean ground turkey but it is much softer and squishier than ground beef or even regular ground turkey. You might notice a more mushy texture to it,but it's easy to get used to and you probably won't notice it as much with something like chili. It's more noticeable for things like burgers or meatloaf of meatballs.
