Turkey Chili

This was a really hardy very flavorful chili.  Captain usually hates chili with beans, in fact he likens beans to carnations as just plain "filler".  He actually really enjoyed this chili black beans and all.  It was super easy to throw together and literally took about 15 minutes.  I did not feed this to Little Man and The Princess because it was pretty spicy.  The best part about this chili is it is healthy and full of protein!

1.25 lbs of ground turkey
1 large onion chopped
1 large clove of garlic minced
1.5 cups frozen corn
1 red pepper diced
3 small hot peppers diced (I used pablanos from my garden)
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 package of chili seasoning

for toppings: the sky is the limit, oyster crackers, shredded cheese (any kind), sour cream, guac....etc.

cook first three ingredients until turkey is not pink, drain and put into crock.  Stir in the res of the ingredients until well mixed.  This will seem very dry but do not worry, the tomatoes boil down and there is plenty of liquid at the end.  Cook on low 6 hours serve with toppings.
