This recipe is from the Eating for Life book by Bill Phillips. We love it. I use ground beef and turkey breast or chicken breast. If it doesn't say breast on the package it is just ground "everything" chicken or turkey. I usually have to buy the breast and grind it in my food processor myself. I make changes each time; but stick with the measurements as a guide.
1In a large pot over medium heat, add ground meat; cook for a few minutes to brown meat, drain fat and then add onion, garlic, bell pepper, parsley & jalapenos. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
2Stir in the chili powder and cumin; cook for another 2 mnutes.
3Add broth, vermouth (if using), tomatoes and beans; bring to a boil over hight heat.
4Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 90 minutes.
Ladle a portion of chili into individual bowls and top with cheese.
