Turkey Chipotle Chili

It's not Super Bowl Sunday with out homemade chili. I made this recipe that I found years ago in Self magazine. It is one of our winter favorites and you can't even tell it's low cal! Sometimes I serve it over brown rice but it is just as good all by itself. Today I served it with my homemade multi-grain bread.

Turkey Chipotle Chili
2 t olive or canola oil
1 small onion, diced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 lb. ground turkey breasts
1 t canned chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, minced (or more if you like the heat)
1 can tomato sauce (15 oz.)
1 can dark red kidney beans, undrained (15 oz.)
1/2 t chili powder
1 t kosher salt
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream

Saute onion and pepper in oil over medium heat, about 5 minutes
Add ground turkey and cook, stirring, about 5 minutes
Add chipotle pepper, tomato sauce, beans, chili powder and salt. Stir well.
Increase heat, stirring until mixture comes to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
Ladle into bowls, top with cheddar cheese and sour cream.
