Turkey, Black Bean & Pinto Chili

September 27, 2011 1:56 pm by

This recipe is low sodium, low cal and very low fat.  It is not lacking flavor, by any means, and in fact, does not taste one bit low fat or low cal for that matter.

For the Turkey Meat please refer to my Versatile Turkey recipe to use where the turkey is called for below.

This recipe can be as thick or soupy as you want depending on how much water you add, if any.  The way I am going to present it below should be thick as I add no extra water to the cans.

1.5 lbs. Ground Turkey cooked according to my Versatile Turkey recipe.

1 15 oz can Low Sodium Black Beans (entire can w/ juice)

1 15 oz can Trader Joe’s Cuban Black Beans (entire can w/ Juice)

1 16 oz can Safeway Chili Beans (no meat – just seasoned pinto beans on the pinto beans aisle) or low sodium pinto beans

1 14 oz can Petite Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Jalapenos

3 oz. Chipotle Tomato Sauce (I found La Morena Brand at Foodmaxx) I froze the other half of the can for next time

1  7 oz. can of no salt added tomato sauce

1 6 oz. can of tomato paste (preferably no salt added)

2 TBS dehydrated onions

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garlic powder

If you want a thicker recipe add all of the above without rinsing the bottoms of the cans.  If you would like it soupier, then put a little water in the bottom of each can of beans to to flavor the water and make it soupier.

Bring to a boil while  stirring constantly then reduce to simmer and cover, let simmer, stirring occasionally for about 30 – 40 mins.

This is great topped with Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt and Salsa :)  Enjoy!!

Yields aprx. 8 bowls (1/8th of the pot, per bowl)
