Recipe: Comforting Turkey Chili

So as you all know I am doing the Live Fit program by Jamie Eason. I ended up starting the program on August 10th and the past four days have been ok so far. I have found sticking to the diet a little hard. The diet requires you to eat quite regularly, this week I just haven’t been able to take the time out to meal prep. This will be the key to success! This weekend will be filled with meal prepping. I did however try one of the suggested meals from Jamie Eason. The Turkey Chili. I really love it! It is so easy to make and is a hit with the family. For the kids and hubby you can throw so Garlic Bread on the salad or a simple salad.

Here is how I made mine:

Ingredients:
1 Onion
4 Cloves Garlic
1 Jalapeno
1 Tsp Chipotle
1 Tsp Tomato Ketchup
1 Tsp Oregano
1 Tsp Thyme
2 Bay Leaves
1lb Ground Turkey
1 Can Mixed Bean Medley
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 Can Chopped Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Chicken Stock

Method:
Brown onions with a little bit of Olive Oil. Once browned add garlic and jalapeno. I roasted my garlic in the oven before, tastes so amazing. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes then add ground turkey. Brown and cook turkey. As its cooking add, chipotle, oregano, and thyme. Once it is cooked through add remaining ingredients. I drained the water from the can of beans and rinsed them. This was a suggested tip from Jamie Eason as it gets rid of unnecessary starches. You also add chicken stock and the water from the canned tomatoes, so you don’t really need it.

I then let it simmer for about an hour to really let everything cook together. I don’t like mine too watery so I left the lid off for a bit to get rid of some of the fluid.
You can also throw this into the slow cooker for a meal ready when you get home!

Enjoy 🙂
