Skinny Turkey Chili Soup

Last winter I was hooked on this low calorie turkey chili. I would make a big batch and put it in serving size containers, store it in the fridge so I would have a quick lunch all ready to go. All I had to do was warm it up in the microwave.

I love that this soup is low in calories, high in protein and would fill me up fast. Win! Win! Win!

Skinny Turkey Chili Recipe

1 pound lean ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup celery chopped
1 can of Rotel
1 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 can low fat chicken broth

1) Brown the ground turkey, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
2) In a large pot cook the peppers, onion, celery on low heat for about 3-5 minutes, until they begin to soften.

3) Add the chili powder, paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper, Stir for 1 minute.
4) Add the can of Rotel and chicken broth. Bring to boil over high heat.
5) Once the soup begins to boil reduce the heat to low-medium and allow to simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
6) Add the cooked ground turkey and simmer for 5 minutes.

This recipe is usually for about 4 servings. I like to double the recipe so I will have plenty of ready made lunches all set.
