Turkey Chili

1 pound of ground turkey breast (can also use lean ground beef or chicken, if desired)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
14 oz. pinto beans, drained
28 oz. diced tomatoes (sodium-free)
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. black pepper, freshly ground

Brown ground turkey breast in large pot over medium heat along with onion, garlic and green pepper. Add spices and beans. Stir for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

You can also add chopped mushrooms or red onions to the chili, if you desire. I add a touch of Real Salt (brand) to this as well. I like it low sodium though.

This makes a yummy, hearty soup that will last for several days and gives you a great intake of veggies every time you eat it.
