  • 1 pound ground turkey meat (90 to 94% lean)
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa, medium or spicy
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons chili powder and 2 teaspoons ground cumin


  1. Mist a wide pot or large skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium-high heat.
  2. Brown meat for about six minutes, breaking it apart into crumbles as it cooks.
  3. Add beans and salsa and mix until everything is well-combined.
  4. Lower heat to medium and continue to cook for another three to five minutes, stirring occasionally until your chili is warmed through. Taste and add optional chili powder, ground cumin and any other preferred seasonings, if desired.

To Serve

  1. Serve in bowls with toppings of choice, or create healthy chili dogs by spooning over lean poultry sausages in whole grain buns. Enjoy!
