Healthy hearty turkey breast chilli

Healthy hearty turkey breast chilli

About this recipe: Using turkey breast is super lean. You can't tell it's not beef as the beef stock really absorbs into the mince, giving a real full bodied meaty flavour without any guilt! For extra luxury but no guilt I serve with no fat Greek yoghurt, half fat sprinkling of cheese and wholemeal pitta.

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat and add the onions, peppers and spices. Stir for 5 to 7 minutes until gently softened.
  2. Add in the garlic and the mince, breaking up not too finely - we want it chunky!
  3. Once mince has browned add the water, stock cube, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and kidney beans. Stir until stock cube has dissolved, then add pinch of sugar and salt and pepper.
  4. Cover and simmer for 1 hour to really let the flavours mingle. If you find it a bit wet, just leave lid off for half the cooking time.
  5. Serve and enjoy!


Great for freezing,and of course you can use any meat you like.
