Instructions
  1. Heat large Saucepan over medium heat. Brown ground turkey.
  2. While ground turkey is browning, wash and chop onion, carrots and zucchini.
  3. Measure out spices and mix together to form your 'chili seasoning' (chili powder, cumin, cayenne, onion & garlic powder, salt, pepper)
  4. Season ground meat with spice mixture and add in vegetables, sauté for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.
  5. Make sure your saucepan is large enough then add in can of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce stir and bring to a simmer.
  6. Add in chick peas and dark red kidney beans and stir. If you are adding in BBQ sauce add now. Allow chili to simmer for 30-40 minutes or if you have the time you can put in the crock pot on low for 2-3 hrs.
  7. Garnish with pickled jalepenos and slices of avocado! You may even swirl a dollop of good quality olive oil on top for extra fat! YUM
Recipe Notes

I used a crock pot to finish this off because it was such a big batch! You can easily use any vegetables you have on hand. This is a very hearty chili and you could easily make this vegetarian by eliminating the ground turkey.
