Black Bean Turkey Chili


1 pound lean ground turkey
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1-1/2 cups frozen corn (about 8 ounces), thawed
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 cup water
Shredded cheddar cheese, optional


1In a 6-qt. stockpot, cook and crumble turkey with green pepper and onion over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in seasonings; cook 1 minute.
2Stir in tomato sauce, beans, corn, tomato and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, to allow flavors to blend, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. If desired, serve with cheese.

Helpful Hints:

Freeze option: Freeze cooled chili in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.
