Hearty and Healthy Turkey Chili

This is a great cold night or football game watching dish. It’s great because you dump all the ingredients together and let it simmer until you’re ready to eat.

1lb of ground turkey

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 packet of ranch dressing

1 packet of chili seasoning

1 can of condensed French Onion Soup

1 can of kidney beans

1 can of canalleni beans (sp? white kidney beans is what I’m looking for here)

1 white onion

3 garlic cloves, crushed

 

In a stock pot, heat olive oil with the garlic. Add in the turkey and brown and then add in the diced onion. Salt and pepper and let cook until the onions begin to become translucent. Add in the ranch and chili packets.

Partially drain the beans and add them in. Then the onion soup and tomato sauce. If it seems too thick, add a little hot water, but it should be pretty dense. Reduce the heat and really scrap the bottom of the stock pot to get all the bits off the bottom. Let simmer for at least 20 minutes or until you’re ready to eat.

Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese and crackers. Also cornbread would be delicious!
