Healthy Chili Recipe

Here is a super healthy chili recipe.

Celery - 2 cups chopped
One onion chopped
as much garlic as you want - chopped
1 package of extra lean ground turkey (when you are cooking the turkey you might need to add one TBS of olive oil)
saute everything together

Add 1 can of tomato sauce, 1/2 can of water and 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes (I crush these by hand as I add them in) (If you want to make a bigger batch and 2 cans of the sauce, 1 can or so of water and 2 cans of the whole peeled tomatoes)
3 cans of red kidney beans - no salt added

Let all of the cook for a bit and then add the season. Start with 1 tsp of each
chili powder
cayanne pepper (1/2 tsp) - depends on how hot you want it
italian seasoning (I use this in lots of stuff)
garlic powder
onion power
salt and pepper

Mix everything up and let it sit for a bit (15 minutes or so)

Taste it because you will need to add more of the seasoning above.

Serve up when it tastes great.
