Turkey or Veggie Chili

This is the best chili recipe I have found yet! Simmers in the slow cooker all day, or on the stovetop at the last minute. Easily turns into fabulous veggie chili by simply omitting the turkey and increasing the beans. Add veggies you like, or omit ones you don't like. There is lots of flavour, but its not very hot (my 3yo and 10mth old love it).

1lb ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1c carrots, chopped
1c mushrooms, sliced
1c frozen corn
2 lg cans mixed beans (drained and rinsed)
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
1 can chopped chilis
4Tb chili powder
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp oregano
1tsp cumin
1tsp paprika
1tsp pepper
1tsp salt
1c water (start out with much less, use more if needed depending on how runny or chunky you like your chili)

1. Brown turkey and onions.
2. Add to crockpot. Add rest of ingredients. Simmer on low all day.

This sounds yummy! I will have to try it.

I have to admit, I am a big fan of Yves Veggie Ground Round for vegetarian chili. Normally I am not really into soy products that simulate meat, but in chili, I find this stuff works really, really well because it really absorbs the flavours. I can even fool my no-soy-eating stepfather with it!
