This is one of D’s favorite dishes right now. I made it last night and had leftovers for lunch today.
Lean ‘N Mean Turkey Chili
1 lb. 99% lean ground turkey, thawed
1 can dark red kidney beans, rinsed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can no salt added diced tomatoes
several handfuls fresh baby spinach
generous sprinkling of pine nuts
3/4 cup all natural tomato sauce (more if you like a soupier chili)
extra virgin olive oil
1 packet of McCormick’s 30% Less Sodium Chili Seasoning Mix
Heat a couple of glugs of EVOO in a deep sauce pan over medium heat.
Add garlic to your liking. Cook briefly but don’t let it turn brown.
Add thawed ground turkey, breaking it up, and cook until almost all pink is gone. Add a tiny bit of water if things are looking dry.
Mix in seasoning mix, both sets of beans, diced tomatoes, pine nuts, about 3/4 cup tomato sauce (add more for a soupier chili), spinach.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 5-8 minutes. Sometimes I add water during this step to reduce viscosity.
Once everything is heated through and the spinach is fully wilted, turn off the heat and serve. Enjoy!
Makes 4-6 large servings. More if you aren’t a pig like we are.
