3 – Bean Turkey Chili

It's Monday and it's raining in the East Bay!

The weather can often times lead to our "success rate" of making it to the gym dwindle very quickly! But don't let it! Think of it like this, you can't be outside anyways, so you might as well pack that gym back and head inside for a workout. We guarantee that not only will you keep dry, but you will also feel better post-workout to combat those "rainy day blues!"

Today we have a wonderful Rainy Day Soup Recipe for you, courtesy of ClubSport San Ramon Personal Trainer, Judy Corbett:

3 – Bean Turkey Chili

  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 1 lb Lean Ground Turkey Breast
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes with jalapenos 
  • 1 10.5 oz can of each of White beans, Black beans, and Kidney Beans; all drained
  • 1 can low-sodium chicken broth
  •  ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Cooking Instructions

In a large pot, heat the oil on medium-low.  Add the diced onion and sauté until soft (3 to 5 minutes).  Add the ground turkey and brown it (about 5 minutes). Add the remaining ingredients.  Stir and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.  Optional: top with low-fat shredded cheddar cheese when serving.

Makes 6 servings.
