Default Turkey Chili

I made a big pot of turkey chili last night for dinner, so for kicks and giggles I put it in to a recipe calculator this morning and holy cow it's a pretty awesome dinner for very few calories. So here's how I made it:

1 pound ground turkey
1 onion
1 green pepper (diced)
1 red pepper (diced)
2 quarts home canned tomatoes (any variety of store bought work just fine 2 quarts = 8 cups)
2-4 Tbls chili powder
2 cans of kidney beans drained (light, dark, black - chef's choice so I used dark red)
1 can of tomato paste (4 oz)
salt & pepper
1 Tbls paprika (optional)

Spray the bottom of a 6 quart pot with cooking spray, brown turkey (breaking it apart as it browns) and saute onions and peppers. Then add tomatoes, beans and seasoning, bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 mintues. Makes about 13 cups of chili at 97 calories/cup. YUMMMM!!!
