1. Coat a large, nonstick pan with cooking spray. Add olive oil and heat. Add ground turkey, onions and garlic. Brown over medium-high heat, stirring often to break up turkey into small lumps.
2. Stir in tomatoes, enchilada sauce, chili powder and cumin. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir often. Add a little salt and pepper, if desired.
3. Add 1 cup chili to each bowl and let everyone top their own with optional toppings. Or, see serving tips, below.
Makes 5 cups total. Each serving, 1 cup.
There are several brands of red enchilada sauce. For gluten-free, use Old El Paso enchilada sauce, La Victoria or Las Palmas. These brands are sold in most major supermarkets.
Chili is such a versatile meal that’s great for lunch or dinner. Perfect to make this time of year. It freezes great. You can create a taco salad and top the lettuce with chili, chopped tomatoes and drizzle my ranch dressing and salsa. Crumble some reduced-fat tortilla chips on top. It makes a very satisfying meal course salad. Or stuff a baked potato and use the same topping ideas.
