Body Beast Chili Recipe

Beast Chili

A great mentor shared this Chili recipe with me. It is so delicious.  It became a staple in her home and it has quickly become one of my favorites as well. My kids love it too!  I top mine with a tablespoon of greek yogurt, fresh avocado and a little Mexican cheese. 
*I did modify this recipe a little. I added a can of small diced tomatoes, did not drain the beans. Added both kidney and chili beans and only used 1 lb of turkey.

Ingredients

1.5 lbs of lean ground turkey meat
 1 medium onion, chopped
 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

1 tbsp chili powder
 1/2 tsp sea salt
 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
Can of Chili beans or ranch style beans 
1 can kidney beans or pinto, not drained (get low sodium)
1  15 oz can tomato sauce or you can add a large 29 oz can.
