Black Bean and Turkey Chili

I know it's not quite chili weather, but that doesn't mean you can't make an all-in-one meal year round! Especially if you're like my family and you're already running ragged with the kids activities.

This Black Bean and Turkey Chili is a hearty and healthy dinner that you can make ahead of time, then reheat for a quick weeknight meal. Serve this Black Bean and Turkey Chili on it's own (which is how I like it since I'm watching my carb intake) or over rice or pasta. Simply add all of the ingredients to the pot and let it do the work for you!
