Turkey Chili

This recipe is adapted from a beef chili recipe I had but since I don’t eat a lot of red meat these days I substitute turkey for many recipes I used to use beef with.
1 lb. ground turkey
2 medium onions chopped
2 clove garlic  minced
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 can (5 ½ oz.) tomato paste
1 tbsp  Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
Tabasco sauce to taste
1 tsp each of paprika, cumin and  brown sugar 
1 can red kidney beans, drained
1 can chick peas
1 small can corn kernels
1 can black peas (optional – if you like a lot of beans)
Sauté turkey, onion and garlic. together until turkey looks almost cooked – separate turkey into pieces by stirring so it doesn’t clump. Add all ingredients except the beans and bring to a boil. Add beans and cook another 25 minutes till all heated through.  Serves 4 (at least)
***I also make this in a slow cooker where I sauté the meat, onions and garlic – then throw everything into a slow cooker give it a good stir and cook on low for 4 hours.
Feel free to add or subtract ingredients from this recipe according to your tastes – you can’t really go wrong with chili!
