Slow Cook Turkey Chili

Consumer Reports

We love chili at our house and it is my husbands all time favorite during football season.  Life doesn't get any simpler than tossing your entire meal ingredients in a slow cooker, turn it on and wait for the delicious aroma to fill your entire home.    I found this recipe in  Consumer Reports Food & Fitness Magazine, so  check out Consumer Reports.  This dish  makes 6 servings.  Double ingredients for more servings if needed. 

1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 pound ground turkey, 1 large chopped onion, 1 minced garlic clove, 2 cups frozen corn, 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes (use no salt if watching sodium intake), 1 (15 ounce) can low sodium black beans, rinsed, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 2 tablespoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 red bell peppers chopped.

In a large skillet, heat oil and cook turkey, onion and garlic over medium high heat, stirring until the turkey crumbles and is no longer pink.  Drain.  Spoon the mixture into a 5 quart slow cooker.  Stir in peppers, corn, tomatoes, beans, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt and cinnamon until well blended.  Cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.

Ladle into individual bowls and serve with sour cream & shredded cheddar cheese . 

*I love serving this dish with corn bread or corn muffins (home made or store bought.
