Moderately Spicy Turkey Chili

Whether you're hankering for something spicy, need to make a meal on a budget, or looking to stay on track of being healthy, definitely try this chili.  The great part about it is the ability to substitute - if you're vegetarian, eliminate the turkey and add some extra beans; on the flip side, if you're into a meaty chili, eliminate one can of beans and throw in another pound of meat. Like it extra spicy, try adding more jalapenos or chili powder.  I toss in chia seeds to make it extra filling and give it an even greater fiber boost.

Garnish with some fat free sour cream and fat free cheddar cheese!
Have it alone, or throw it on a salad to get even more veggies.
