I fell in love with this recipe from Heidi Powell’s blog while researching carb cycling recipes.  This one is truly a winner in my book!  I made a few slight modifications based on my preferences. You can even make a double batch and freeze it for those nights when you just don’t have time or the drive to make a healthy meal. Try it and let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂

Ingredients for 15 Minute Taco Chili:

2 Lbs Ground Turkey

2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning {Gluten Free}

1 Onion, diced

1 Green Pepper, chopped

1 Yellow or Red Pepper, chopped

1 Can Corn, drained

1 Can Stewed Tomatoes (with juices)

1 Can Black Beans, drained and rinsed

In a medium stock pot brown the turkey over medium heat using a spatula to break the ground turkey into pieces.

Once the turkey is starting to break apart add the diced onion and continue to cook until the meat and onions start to caramelize about 5 minutes. By allowing the onions and turkey to caramelize it add depth and additional flavor.

Once the turkey and onion is cooked add the Taco Seasoning, diced peppers, stewed tomatoes and black beans; stir everything together and continue to cook 5 minutes. I like my peppers a bit crunchy but if you want them softer you can add them at the same time you add the onions.

Serve alone or you can garish with a bit of sour cream and scallions.  I think the kiddos would even like some tortilla chips and cheese. ***Everything in the recipe is Gluten Free and if you omit the sour cream it’s dairy free too!
