Aly's Crock Pot Recipe: Turkey Chili

Here's my healthy crock pot recipe for the week. It's a Turkey Chili recipe and it has to be the tastiest chili I've ever had (recipe courtesy of my former co-worker, Ryan).

"The Best Chili EVER"

2 lbs ground turkey
1 large can crushed tomatoes (no salt/sugar added)
2 large cans diced tomatoes
1 small can diced "chili style" tomatoes
1 package frozen corn or 2 cans "niblet" Green Giant corn
4 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small can diced green chiles
1 pkgs "Hot" McCormick Chili Seasoning
2 pkg "Regular" McCormick Chili Seasoning
1 tsp cumin
1 small bunch, fresh basil, rough chopped
1 small white onion, minced
1 clove fresh garlic (not dried or jarred!!) minced
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers (jarred works better) diced
Mrs. Dash Hot Spice

Brown ground turkey; drain once when about 85% cooked through, replace in pan and season the turkey well with Mrs. Dash and ½ tsp of cumin. When cooked through, place on platter lined with paper towel. Let stand for a minute or two. Place all ingredients in large bowl, mix well to combine. Place in crock pot to heat through at low temp for at least least three hours, no more than eight.

Yields 20 servings
1 cup = 3 points (approx. 150 cal)

The chili tastes great with a small slice of toasted sourdough bread. You can also amp up the spiceness with more jalapeno peppers or green chilis. Enjoy!
