Bean & Turkey Chili

Sticking with my monthly goals... I found and made another recipe in our crockpot last week.

It turned out delicious and TL loved it.  Accompanied with some corn bread, it made for a hearty dinner and lots of leftovers.

I found a few bean chili recipes online, then ended up creating my own, adding and taking away ingredients from the recipes I found.

1 can kidney beans
1 can chick peas (which after 20 mins on the aisle at the store I figured out are aka: garbanzo beans)
1 can black beans
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can of chopped chilies
1 can of tomatoes
1 onion, diced
chili powder (I just stirred in as much as I thought would be good)
ground cumin (just a little)
ground turkey (cooked)

Add all of the ingredients into crock pot and cook for 6-8 hours.  I started out with the crock pot on low, then turned it to high for the last 2 hours.

We mixed ours with gluten free corn bread - I didn't make it from scratch (maybe someday)... I bought a box from Whole Foods and mixed the ingredients together.

I think I may keep the ball rolling and make something new this weekend!
