Chili is a great opportunity to take advantage of ground turkey - it`s a little more bland, but usually much leaner, than regular ground beef.

2 medium, thinly sliced into rounds

  1. Heat a large pot coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add oil and onion; sauté onion until soft. Add garlic and carrots and cook until garlic is softened. Add ground turkey and brown meat, about 5 minutes. Stir to break up lumps.
  2. Add chili powder, paprika, cumin and red pepper flakes, tomatoes and tomato sauce, broth and vinegar. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Add beans and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, until peppers are done, about 10 minutes. Divide into 1-cup servings and serve.
