Okay, I totally just jumped on the “calling recipes ‘skinny'” bandwagon.
I’m only kind of sorry. “Skinny Turkey Chili” sounds way more appetizing than “Healthy Turkey Chili,” or “Low-Calorie Turkey Chili,” don’t you think?
So, yes, this chili is ridiculously healthy—low in fat, high in protein, and low calorie—but it’s also ridiculously tasty!
Of course, this isn’t any sort of “traditional” chili, but ya know, it’s no fun when people want to hold things to certain standards, and say they have to be one way, or no way. *Ahem* For instance, I’ve been getting a lot of hate lately (not here on the blog because you guys are amazing and I love you) for the cake I posted this week—the Red, White, and Blue Cake. Why? Because apparently some people seem to think I’m not allowed to have “blue” in the title unless the cake itself is dyed blue. You can never please ’em all, I guess.
Enough about cake, let’s talk about this chili. It’s chock full of turkey, tomatoes, bell peppers, black beans, onions and lots of yummy seasonings–including a couple that one may find a bit out of the ordinary. A dash or worcestershire sauce gives a wonderful depth of flavor, and cinnamon brings in warmth.
I like to top my serving with diced avocado and pickled jalapeño, but greek yogurt would also be delicious. Mikey likes a nice heap of shredded cheese on his. It would also be awesome with a side of Zucchini Cornbread. Basically, what I’m saying is that however you enjoy it, it’s dang good.
By the way, Happy Friday the 13th! There’s a full moon tonight! This will be the last full moon on a Friday the 13th until 2049, so enjoy it!
P.S—Just watched the season finale of Orange is the New Black, last night, and now I’m going through withdrawals since I have no more episodes to watch 🙁
