Crockpot Chili

Well, I made this chili the other day in the Crockpot. I made it with ground beef, but it could just as easily be made with ground turkey and be made on the stove and slow cooked. :) The nutritional stats are for you'd have to recalculate for turkey.

The servings are generous at about 1.5 cups per serving, which was a good sized bowl! This recipe made 6 servings.

1 lb. lean ground beef (93% lean)
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 packet Old El Paso Chili Seasoning Mix
1 (15.5 oz.) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 large (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
2 large red peppers, diced
1 large onion, diced
2 jalapenos, seeds removed and minced
3/4 cup water

Brown and drain the ground beef with the minced garlic, seasoning with a little salt and pepper. Place all ingredients in the Crockpot, combine well, and cook on low all day (ours went from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.). YUM! Served it with rice for my son and guest, low fat cheddar cheese (for me) and some plain Fage yogurt instead of sour cream. OH MY!
