Chili Con Turkey *A Recipe*

Yet again, The Abs Diet has done it again!! I have yet to make a meal from The Abs Diet and not love it!!!
This weeks new recipe is called Chili Con Turkey. I was a little hesitant about this recipe because I am NOT a chili person but it turned out delicious!!! And as always, the best part is....It's super HEALTHY and low fat :D And this is a very simple and quick recipe for any night of the week.

Chili Con Turkey*

1 pound ground turkey
1 can (14 oz) Mexican style diced tomatoes
1 can (15oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14 oz) whole-kernel sweet corn, drained
1 Package (1 1/2 oz) dried chili mix
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 cup water
1 cup cooked brown rice

(After making this we felt that the recipe was a tiny bit bland. We added some salt and pepper but next time we will add some other spices).

1. Over Medium-high heat brown the turkey in a large non-stick skillet
2.  When turkey is browned, add all the other ingredients except the rice. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
3. While that is cooking prepare the brown rice.
4. After cooking for 10 minutes serve the chili over the rice.

Makes 4 servings.

While this was not our favorite recipe it was very good and unlike anything else I usually make. This recipe will be added to my weekly queue of recipes.

Let me know if you tried this how you like it! Also I'm always looking for ways to spice up the recipes. Let me know what you added or changed!!

Happy Cooking!

  1. I LOVE chili and I love that you added flax seeds!!!!

  2. I need to try this recipe out. Minus the beans though. I know, chili without beans, but I just don't like beans. haha...
    My mom and I have changed our eating habits(which I'll be posting about sometime. haha) and this would be perfect on a rainy day.

    Lots of Smiles!

  3. It look delicious! I never would have thought chili was so low fat and healthy...but it is on like very diet! And so satisfying!

  4. Ooh! I've never cooked with flax seed before. That looks good!

  5. Hey James!
    We do like chili, so this is probably going to be a winner for us! Hope you're doing great!

  6. Yum! This sounds great Jami! Love that it's lowfat and healthy too. At the moment it's way too HOT to think about chili here. (Yes, in April. In Virginia. Nuts) Hope you're having a great day so far! Drop on by and join in the party today if you'd like! Talk to ya later Jami, ~K
