Turkey, Bean & Vegetable Chili from Weight Watcher’s

In my menu planning last week, I ran across this recipe on Weight Watcher’s for Turkey, Bean & Vegetable Chili. My husband has declared it is the best chili he’s had in a long time. :)

What you need:

Oil or cooking spray
1 lb lean ground turkey (93%), uncooked – I bought a higher fat percentage but drained mine well
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large carrot, chopped
2 medium celery ribs, chopped
1 medium yellow pepper, chopped
1 medium orange pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp paprika
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
29 oz fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
29 oz canned diced tomatoes with green chiles
15-1/5 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15 oz fat-free refried beans

Add oil or spray large pan. Brown turkey, breaking up meat as it cooks, approx. 10 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl, set aside.

Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cook for 1 minute. Add carrots, celery and peppers; cook, stirring occasionally, for approx. 5 minutes. Add chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, salt and cayenne pepper; stir for approx. 1 minute.

Stir in broth, tomatoes, kidney beans, refried beans and turkey; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered and stirring every 5 minutes or so. Cook for approx. 35 minutes total.

Serves 8. Serving size: 1-1/2 cups. Weight Watcher’s Points Per Serving: 5.

I made a Weight Watcher’s Corn Bread recipe to serve along side this. It too was 5 points per serving. That recipe is to come next week. :)

Do you have a recipe that you’d like to share? It does not have to be a Weight Watcher’s recipe (although they are welcomed).
