Turkey Chili

On a stormy, rainy, and "chilly" afternoon, this is a perfect, quick meal to dish up. 

Turkey Chili
1 large can diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce (no salt added)
1 small can of green chilies
1 can of black beans
1 can of pinto beans (you can use red kidney beans if you like those better)
1 can of whole kernel corn
1 lb. of ground turkey
½ cup of chopped onion
1-2 gloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of water
2 Tbsp. of chili powder (or more – the more the better!)
¼ tsp. of black ground pepper
Shredded cheddar cheese
Add salt and pepper to taste 

In a large sauce pan, brown the ground turkey. When it is no longer pink, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Also add in the chili powder and black pepper. Once the onion starts to soften add in all the canned ingredients (diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chilies, beans, and corn), and water. Bring to a boil. Then turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Top it off with a little cheese and cilantro. Delish! It makes enough to feed 6 – 8 people, or left overs for lunch!
