I wanted to adapt one of our favorite meals, chili, to be a bit healthier. By substituting turkey for beef, we didn't even notice the difference. In fact, we liked it even better. We usually serve it over rice with a dollop of sour cream and avocado slices on top. Yummy. Serve with a salad and you have a very satisfying, tasty dinner in less than a half and hour.
