- 1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
- 4 tbsp. ground cumin

In a large soup pot, sauté the red onion, bell pepper and garlic cloves in the oil.
Once the onions are translucent, stir in the turkey meat. Continue to stir until the meat is cooked.
Stir in cumin, coriander, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
Pour in the chicken broth.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and beans.
Keep at a low and steady boil for about 5-10 minutes to allow the spices to really absorb.
If you find the chili is too thick, add the can of tomato sauce.
Cool and serve.
