Don't feel bad eating several bowls of this Healthy Turkey Chili.
  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and bell pepper. Saute for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add ground turkey, breaking up the meat and cooking until no longer pink. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and salt.
  3. Stir in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. You want the chili to thicken. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
