Chili With a Kick

Chili With a Kick

1-2 pounds ground lean turkey
1 28 oz tomato sauce no salt added
1 28 oz Rotel Original or Hot
1 large can red kidney beans rinsed- omit if you do not like beans in your chili
1 large can chili beans- omit if you do not like beans in your chili
1/2 - 1 onion diced, depending on preference
1 Green Bell Pepper diced
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
Optional- frozen corn
Optional- whole wheat elbow macaroni or spaghetti

Brown meat, onion and bell pepper and drain, in a large pot mix all ingredients except pasta and simmer, if you like your chili thick and you are not using beans, you can add a tablespoon of corn starch, if you like it thinner you may need to add a little water as it cooks due to there is not as much liquid in the Rotel as in a large can of plain diced tomatoes.  Simmer on medium until bubbling.  Cook pasta and drain.


  1. Tried it last night and it was great and the kids loved it!! I didn't use the no salt added tomato sauce I didn't have it on hand. I will start buying the no salt added. Thanks for a great dinner!
