Turkey Chili

This recipe is from the "Crock Pot, Comfort Food Diet Cookbook". I loved it so much, I had to share!

What you need:

2 cans (14oz each) sodium-free, peeled whole tomatoes, drained
2 cans (14oz each) sodium-free red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
1 pound cooked 99% fat-free ground turkey
1 can (14oz) reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can (12oz) sodium free tomato sauce
1 cup finely chopped yellow onion (I used a red onion)
1 cup finely chopped carrot (I omited this)
1 cup finely chopped celery
3 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp crushed red pepper (I used red pepper flakes)
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup amaretto (It's optional, I didn't use it)

Combine all ingredients from top to bottom into the Crock Pot. Cover; cook on low 7 hours.
(The cookbook says to cook on high but I cooked it on low and it was great!)

Makes 6 servings.
Each serving is 1 1/2 cups @ 6 P+ for Weight Watchers! (NO, this is not an endorsed site!)

I was REALLY full after eating 1 1/2 cups, I would probably split them up into 1 cup servings next time. I just used the recipe builder and 1 cup = 4 pts.

Brown meat!!

Add meat to the crock pot, add red beans to the crock pot.

Add black beans :)

Add peeled whole tomatos & tomato sauce.
Finely chop onion and celery.
Add chili powder, worcestershire sauce, ground cumin & red pepper flakes.
Add celery and onion to pot!

Carefully I mixed everything together & voila! 7 hours on low... it was delicious!
