Uncooked extra lean ground turkey breast

1 oz

Uncooked onion(s)

1 large, chopped

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 large, diced

Uncooked bell pepper(s)

1 cup(s), green variety, diced

Uncooked carrot(s)

2 medium, finely chopped

Garlic clove(s)

Dried oregano

½ tsp(s)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

  1. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer the turkey and any juices to a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Add all the remaining ingredients except the scallions and stir well. Cover and cook until the vegetables are softened, 4 – 5 hours on high or 8 – 10 hours on low, stirring in a little additional water if the chili seems dry.
  3. Spoon the chili evenly into 4 bowls and sprinkle with the scallions. Yields 1 2/3 cups per serving.
