• This recipe is for macaroni if using another type of pasta you may need to adjust liquids.

The Greatest Healthy Chili

I had intended to prepare this chili recipe on the stovetop on Monday evening. But Luke my brother had two basketball games about the same time I planned on cooking. I was bummed because I wanted to watch and support him and his team. However, I was excited to see that the chili can cook in the crockpot. I immediately got busy with cooking the meat and tossing everything in the crockpot so that it would be ready to eat when we got home from my brother’s games. My brother’s team did a pretty good job overall but they unfortunately lost. I’m proud of my brother he’s a really good ball player.

Anyway, this chili was amazing, excellently spiced and healthy. It’s made with lean ground turkey, kidney beans, and corn. This version is the greatest! My family loved it, and I’m sure your family will enjoy it too!

The Best Healthy Turkey Chili

INGREDIENTS

2 tsp. olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

1 pound extra lean ground turkey or chicken

4 Tbsp. chili powder

2 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 -1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

1 (28-oz) can diced tomatoes

1 1/4 C. Progresso chicken broth

2 (15 oz) cans Goya dark red kidney beans, optional

1 (15 oz) can sweet corn

For topping: cheese, avocado, tortilla chips, cilantro, sour cream

Directions

1. Pour oil in a large pot and place over medium high heat. Add the onion, garlic and red pepper and saute for five-seven minutes, stirring frequently. Next add in ground turkey and break up the meat; cooking until no longer pink.

2. Next add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt; stir for approximately twenty seconds. Next add in tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for thirty-forty five minutes or until chili thickens and flavors come together. Taste and adjust seasonings and salt as necessary.

Court’s Cooking Notes: To prepare this recipe in the slow cooker reduce the chicken broth to 1/2 cup and brown the turkey and onions before adding to the slow cooker. This is an awesome tailgating or football party recipe!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

When it comes to healthy eating, stuffed bell peppers are my latest favorite thing to make and consume. One of the reasons why I enjoy them so much is because you can stuff them with a variety of different foods such as ground meat and veggies. Then you can season them with your favorite seasonings. This recipe is no different as it has a few ingredients that give you inspiration for your creation of stuffed peppers.

This stuffed peppers dish would also be great to make ahead of time! You can prepare it in the morning or even a day before and when you are ready to cook just place them in the oven for forty minutes before dinner rolls around.

**Court’s Cooking Notes: If you plan on making this dish in the morning or a day before be sure to place your peppers in the fridge immediately after you fix the peppers.**

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients

4 Red Bell Peppers, stems removed and halved

1 lb ground beef or turkey

1 small onion, finely diced

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp salt + 1 Tbsp (divided)

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp Tony Chachere’s creole seasoning

1 egg

1/3 C quick cooking oats

1 Tbsp Worcestershire

15 oz can Goya tomato sauce (divided)

shredded cheese of your choice (we like a combo of Sharp Cheddar and Mozzarella)

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a large baking dish by lining it with foil and greasing it with cooking spray. Set aside.

1. Fill a large pot with water. Place it on the stove and add a tablespoon of salt. Turn your stove on medium/high heat. While waiting for the water to get to a full boil, slice bell peppers in half from stem to end.

2. Then once the water is boiling, place the peppers into the large pot. Let them sit in the boiling salted water for five minutes. Drain. In a skillet, brown the hamburger with the onion, drain. In a large bowl, combine the ground meat and onion mixture, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, creole seasoning, oats, Worcestershire. In a separate bowl mix half the tomato sauce with the egg to temper it. Then add the egg and tomato sauce mixture to the meat mixture. Mix thoroughly.

3. Place the bell pepper halves side by side in a casserole dish. Spoon the meat mixture inside. Top with the remaining tomato sauce and bake for thirty minutes. Top with cheese and bake for five minutes more.
