Turkey or Buffalo Chili

PHASE 1 | Serves 6 (a single portion is 2 cups)
Prep time: 25 minutes | Cook time: 5 to 8 hours, depending on slow-cooker setting

Ingredients

1 to 1½ pounds lean ground turkey or buffalo meat
½ cup diced red onion, or more if desired
2 Tbls. fresh parsley or cilantro
1 heaping Tbls. chili powder
1 Tbls. minced garlic
½ tsp. crushed red chili flakes
15-ounce can white beans
15-ounce can kidney beans (no sugar added)
15-ounce can black beans
15-ounce can pinto beans
15-ounce can lentils or adzuki beans
4 cups chopped zucchini
28-oz can crushed tomatoes
1 heaping tsp. sea salt

Directions

  1. Brown the turkey or buffalo meat in a skillet and drain.
  2. Turn a slow cooker to high setting. Add the meat, onion, parsley, chili powder, garlic, and red pepper flakes to the pot. Stir, cover and set aside.
  3. Open and partially drain all 5 cans of beans; I leave a little liquid in to make my chili a little juicier. Add the beans, zucchini, and tomatoes to the cooker. Stir well.  Keep the cooker set on high for 4 to 5 hours or adjust heat to low and simmer for 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Stir and taste occasionally, adjusting seasonings as needed. Add the salt just before serving to best preserve its nutrients.
  5. Note for those following the Fast Metabolism Diet: This meal is appropriate for Phase One. Because this chili contains such a large amount of starchy legumes, it counts as a Grain as well as Protein and Veggie servings. No need to add an additional grain to the meal, even if the meal map specifies a grain.
