Chili Con Carne

Last night I started out making a vegetarian chili for my husband to enjoy when he got home from work.  I mixed the ingredients, put them in a crock pot and waited.  As it turned out, he had to work until much later than he had anticipated.  I cooled the chili and put it in the refrigerator for the night.  This morning we both decided we wanted some meat in the chili.  I cooked up ground turkey and put it all back in the crock pot.  The end result was simply amazing.  Here is the recipe for you to try. 

Mix the following ingredients in a crock pot:

2 cans of kidney beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 pound of cooked ground turkey (rinse and drain it before adding to cut out excess fat)
1 1/2 cups of diced onions
1 diced red bell pepper
2 cups of water
2 Tablespoons of tomato paste
3 Tablespoons of chili powder
1 Tablespoon of paprika
1 Tablespoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
2 teaspoons of minced garlic

Heat in the crock pot on low for 8 hours.  Enjoy!
