Mindy's Turkey Chili

I'm not going to lie, I don't usually like chili. However, when my friend gave me leftovers of the chili she made last weekend, I became a fan of the stuff!

She's so awesome, she not only gave me leftovers, but she even shared her recipe with me and with you!

Mindy's Turkey Chili

Serves: 8
Nutrition per serving: 246 calories, 5.25 fat, 32 carbs, 20 protein


1 lb. ground turkey
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 can bush's chili beans
1 can light kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 small can v8 original juice
1 can corn
1 red pepper (diced)
1 packet chili mix


Brown ground turkey in skillet until cooked thoroughly. Drain grease. Season with a dash of salt and pepper. Add to large soup pot.

Add tomato sauce, 1/2 can of water, chili beans, drained and rinsed kidney beans, v8 juice, sweet corn, diced red peppers and chili seasoning to soup pot. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I made this chili for dinner tonight, and it was a huge hit with my husband! If you decide to try it, let me know how you like it!

As for day three of intense accountability, it went okay. I went over in calories, but not too bad. I mostly went over because my husband and I stayed up late watching Breaking Bad. We both decided it would be a good idea to have an ice cream sandwich per episode. Definitely not a good idea for my calorie tracking. However, we had a nice relaxing lounge night together, and for that I'm thankful!
