Turkey and Black Bean Chili

From Weight Watchers Pure Comfort cookbook

Hands-On-Prep – 15 min

Cook – 40 min

Serves – 4

2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

¾ pound ground skinless turkey

1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 (14 ½ oz) can diced tomatoes

1 T chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

½ tsp salt

½ cup shredded fat-free sharp cheddar cheese

¼ cup fat-free sour cream

¼ cup sliced scallions

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve with the cheese, sour cream, and scallions.

**The cookbook said it gets better the long it sits (up to 2 days in fridge)
