Hearty Turkey Chili

Friday, January 7, 2011 at 02:01 PM - Posted by Megan - (2) comments

New York has certainly endured a frigid start to 2011. A crisp arctic chill has filled the air, the whips of wind are relentless and the ground has become blanketed with a powdery dusting of snow. These nippy days make me crave the cozy comforts of oversized sweatpants, cuddling up with Cooper and hearty feel-good foods.

Turkey chili is the perfect remedy to warm you up during even the coldest winter temperatures and can easily be reheated for days worth of deliciousness. To punch up the texture of traditional chili, this spicy, satisfying version includes three different varieties of protein-packed beans, sliced mushrooms, chopped tomatoes and crunchy corn. Plus, I used lean ground turkey meat and low sodium broth, so you can stay on track with all your healthier eating resolutions without sacrificing any flavor—I promise. Just fire up a pot and taste for yourself!
