Turkey Chili

A simple "use what you have" recipe by Bethenny Frankel.  It's a great recipe to use substitutes with either by using what you like better or what you have on hand at the time.  It's a very healthy recipe with a little kick to it!  It freezes well so you can enjoy it on any chilly fall or winter day this season!

The recipe calls for:

1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup each:  red, yellow & green peppers, chopped
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (24-27oz) tomato puree
1 can beans of your choice, drained & rinsed
1 or 2 zucchinis or yellow squash (or both), cut in small pieces

-- Saute onion in a little oil in a pot.  Then add the chili powder, cumin & salt/pepper to taste.  
-- Stir in garlic & peppers followed by the tomato puree, zucchini/squash.  Simmer until soft.
-- Add turkey meat & beans, let simmer for 30 minutes.
