Why You Will Love This Recipe

This Turkey, Corn, and Black Bean chili is simply divine. I like to play around with the spices in my chili. Usually, it's a combo of 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin, and some cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes.

The addition of canned chipotle peppers in this is wonderful and I will be adding some every time I make chili now! Top this with some reduced fat cheddar cheese, sour cream or cilantro. That would be additional points of course, one serving of this chili is only 5 points.

    Can this be made in a crock pot?

  2. Jennifer B says

    Yum!! I made it for dinner last night and I couldn't get enough! I made it with chick peas instead of black beans--not a fan of black beans. I put a little more of the chipotle chili's/adobo but everything else was as directed. I didn't eat the fat free cheddar cheese but it didn't need it.
    I had extra points left for dinner, so I had an extra helping. And I just ate more reheated for lunch today-so good. I'm already looking forward to making it again, so easy and quick!
    A+++++++++++
