Light Turkey Taco Chili

A light chili that will nevertheless fill you up with the tastiness of tacos but with way less fat.



  1. Heat oil, cook onion and garlic for five minutes.
  2. Add turkey and spices, then cook another five minutes until turkey is no longer pink.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Note: this is a pretty mild recipe even when using hot salsa, so to make it a little more "oomphy" I'd recommend about a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

If you use 99% fat free turkey for this, it reduces a serving size to 3.5 points. =D

This was really good and easy to make. I added the teaspoon of cayenne and it really kicked it up. MY boyfriend really liked it. He has had some bad experiences with turkey in the past (too grainy), but he said it tasted great. I love this site. Thanks!
