  5. As turkey browns, crumble it so you don't end up with huge chunks in the finished chili. (See the end of this post for my recommended meat chopper.)
  6. While turkey browns, open all the cans.
  7. After the turkey has browned a little, dump in all of the remaining ingredients.
  8. Stir well.
  9. Bring to a boil and turn the burner down to low.
  10. Cover and cook for about three hours, stirring every 1/2 hour to keep beans from burning on the bottom.

Recipe Notes

Be careful of the tomato sauce. Some can be as high as 11 SP per can! The Red Gold brand I used are 0 SP per can.

If you use the chili beans without sauce, this can be 0 SP per serving. All of the other ingredients in the recipe were 0 SP ingredients.  Be sure to check points on anything you substitute.

 

Options:

Adding a packet of these tri-colored tortilla chips adds 2 SP:

I recommend this meat chopper if you want to try to give the turkey a consistency close to hamburger in this dish:
