Tonight I really wanted chili but I am trying to eat healthy this week so I came up with this recipe which was not only a healthy version of chili...it was delicious!
Spicy Chicken Chili1lb ground chicken
1/2 sweet onion (diced)
1 can organic tri blend beans 15 oz (drained and rinsed)
1 can organic diced tomatoes 15 oz
1-2 fresh chilies (diced, seeded if you don't like too spicy)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tbsp organic coconut oil (start using this...so much healthier)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
In a medium stock pot or sauce pan, Saute the onion in the coconut oil on med high heat until the onions become translucent and slightly golden brown. Add the ground turkey and make sure to season with sea salt and black pepper, tumeric and chili powder. Saute until the meat is cooked throughly. Add the minced garlic and chilies. Saute for another minute. Add the diced tomatoes and cook for another 3-4 minutes. If you want the chili to be soupy. ..you can add a can or two of organic tomato sauce here. Bring to a slight boil and then add beans and lower the heat to simmer for another 5 minutes if you didn't add tomato sauce and if you did add tomato sauce, simmer for another 15 minutes. Taste before serving to see if you need to add more salt. I didn't add tomato sauce as I wanted it to be chunky and served it over arugula and baby greens. It was an amazing chili salad! This is also good with a little plain greek yogurt or sour cream on top.
The tumeric gives this dish a beautiful color and tumeric is a super spice...a natural healer. I put it in everything!
Let me know if you enjoy this as much as I do!

I have been working on a big dream of mine. I have faced a big obstacle but am going to continue on the quest of this dream and am so determined to make it happen! It's hard for me to post regularly on here because between working on this project and running my catering company, and being a mom to my wonderful son....I have no time! I do plan on posting regularly someday but for now....I will do what I can. I was in California for a few days this week and was lucky enough to spend a few days with my sister Kovan. It is so beautiful out there and it's so strange being back in Omaha.....it seems so quite here! Though I have to admit that it will be nice to sleep in my own bed! Much love to you all! Avesta
