I'm not sure where this recipe originated, but I've been making this for at least 8 years and over time I've modified it to this version.
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 qt chicken broth
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 can Rotel Tomatoes, undrained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup frozen corn
Brown ground turkey in a 5 qt. pot and then drain off any excess fat. (With the 99% fat free ground turkey that I buy there is never any excess fat.) After browning the turkey, add remaining ingredients to the pot and stir gently to combine. Simmer until heated through.
Alternatively, you can assemble this in your slow cooker and let it cook on low for a few hours.
I usually serve this with a sprinkle of shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a few tortilla chips on the side. Today, I used reduced fat cheese, reduced fat sour cream, and baked tortilla chips in order to lower the calories and fat.
The chili itself has 320 calories in a very generous 1 1/2 cup serving.
Kid Rating: 6 Thumbs Up. They love this each and every time I make it and they ask for it again and again.
