I didn’t intend to do two ground turkey meals two months in a row, but it somehow ended up that way. Ground turkey is always good, right?
The great thing about chili, is that you can literally add anything but the kitchen sink, and it will come out delicious. With my recipe, I am focusing on PCOS friendly foods, so recipes high in Fiber, Protein, and low in sugar. I was a little disappointed that I couldn’t get the sodium lower, but it can’t be perfect I suppose.
You will get approximately 6 servings out of this recipe, possibly even eight. For the sake of being able to share the nutritional value, I will say 6 servings. 22 grams of Protein, and 7 grams of Fiber people! Woohoo!
- 1 lb 93% Lean ground turkey
- 2 cups of Kale, I opted for the organic frozen chopped kale
- 1.5 cups of unsalted chicken stock or broth. **Watch the sodium!**
- 1/2 cup roasted peppers
- 1 chili pepper (optional, but adds just a little bit of spice)
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 can of Cannellini Beans
- 1 can of crushed tomatoes (again, watch the sodium!)
- Italian Seasoning, Pepper, Cumin to taste
- Diced Cilantro
- Chopped Green Onion
- Plain Greek Yogurt, or Sour Cream if you prefer
Cook the ground turkey according to the directions. Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning and Pepper. Once the turkey is almost completely cooked, add the garlic and saute for approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Set Crockpot to low heat. I used this tiny pot (which I LOVE) and everything fit just perfectly in it.
Drain and rinse the Cannellini Beans, and add to the Crockpot. Add Kale, Chicken Stock, and can of crushed tomatoes (with juice).
Chop the chili pepper into small squares. My roasted peppers came in strips, so I also chopped these into smaller pieces. I just discovered these peppers a few months ago and I am IN LOVE. They can be added to anything and it gives it the most fabulous flavor! Add both to the Crockpot.
Add the meat and garlic with the other ingredients, and generously season with Cumin and Italian Seasoning.
Heat in the Crockpot for 4-6 hours, and let the flavors simmer together.
When ready to eat, sprinkle with Cilantro, Green Onions, and a dollop of Plain Greek Yogurt.
*Makes 6 serving*
