I was at the orthodontist the other day and while my son was getting his braces put on, I found this Turkey Bean Chili as I was reading the Good Housekeeping magazine! I don’t know about you but I ALWAYS read most magazines from the back to the front! I’d hate to miss out on any of the delicious recipes that they hide back there!!
Anyways, I found Turkey Bean Chili recipe in the back of Good Housekeeping and it sounded really good and healthy too! Fiber and healthy protein AND I love soup in the winter.
Turkey Bean Chili tasted really good not very spicy at all! I liked the combination of flavors and adapted it a bit too…
* I adapted this recipe from Good Housekeeping Jan 2012
