Fiesta Chili

Always looking for lunch ideas, I decided to make a light version of chili using turkey, white beans, and nutrient rich vegetables.  It is colorful, festive, and full of flavor.  A great spring time twist on the hearty winter meal.  It definitely spiced up my day!

Fiesta Chili


  1. 1 pound ground turkey meat
  2. 3 tbsp. olive oil
  3. 2 tsp. cumin
  4. 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  5. one half of an onion, chopped
  6. salt and pepper, to taste
  7. 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  8. 2 green peppers, chopped
  9. 2 yellow peppers, chopped
  10. 1 zucchini, chopped
  11. 2 cans diced tomatoes with chilies
  12. 1 can small white beans
  13. 1 can black eye peas


  1. In a large deep saute pan, add the turkey, oil, cumin, paprika, onion, salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  2. Stir constantly, mixing the flavors and breaking up the turkey into small chunks.
  3. When the turkey is almost cooked through (about 5-7 minutes), add the chopped green peppers, yellow peppers, zucchini, diced tomatoes, white beans, and black eye peas.
  4. Cover and let simmer about 30 minutes on medium-low heat.
  5. Cook for the last 10 minutes uncovered.
  6. Serve hot!
