Turkey Chili

This is a nutritious, fibre-filled meal.... and delicious too!! I made this turkey 2-bean chili for dinner tonight, and it was very difficult not to have seconds!

Ingredients (Serves 4-6):

-Minced turkey meat (~ 5 oz)
- 1 can Red kidney beans (chili style)
- 1/2 can Chickpeas (rinced with cold water to remove excess sodium)
-1 large red pepper (diced)
-White onion (diced)
- 2 cups Crushed (canned) tomatoes/tomato puree
- 1.5 cups Chicken stock (or just boiling water with the sauce from the red kidney beans can)
-2 cloves of garlic, minced
-Chili powder
-Paprika powder
-Sriracha sauce
-Cheddar cheese, grated (optional - to sprinkle on top of each bowl)

1. In a sautée pan, fry the turkey meat in a little bit of olive oil until browned (over medium high heat)
2. Add garlic, diced onion and diced red peppers, and cook for another 3 minutes,
3. Transfer to a deep pot, keeping it over medium high heat.
4.  Add the tomato puree/crushed tomatoes, chicken stock, beans, a few drops of sriracha sauce and   spices to taste .  Simmer for around 5 minutes.
5.  Cover pot, lower heat to medium low and simmer for around 45 minutes to one hour until the chili thickens to your liking. 
Enjoy over rice and sprinkled with cheddar cheese and/or spring onions!
