This is an ordinary, plain ol', simple chili recipe. Sometimes you just need to go back to the basics, right? I always use ground turkey, because my family likes it better than beef, but you could use either one.


2 tsp. olive oil
1 lb. lean ground turkey (or beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce (or just use more crushed or diced tomatoes)
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes (or more, depending on how spicy you like it)
1 jalapeƱo pepper, minced (remove membranes and/or seeds to reduce the spice)
1 green bell pepper, diced

In a medium pot, heat oil and brown ground turkey with onions and garlic. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, and cumin. Simmer for about 1 hour, adding beans after 30 minutes. I like to serve this with corn muffins.
