Taco Chili

This is a hearty, nutritious chili with a different flair.  The taco seasoning gives it a different flavor that’s pleasantly spicy.

Taco Chili


1 pound ground turkey (or extra lean ground beef)
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 28 oz can of pinto beans
1 15 oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups onion, chopped
1 cup frozen corn, defrosted
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder


1.  Brown turkey or beef in a large nonstick pan.  Add chopped onion and cook until meat is no longer tender.

2.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and cook on low heat for 30 minutes.


Get creative with chili toppings.  Sour cream, block olives, crushed corn tortilla pieces, shredded cheese and green onions are all good options.
