Ingredients

1 pound turkey breakfast sausage
3/4 pound ground round
1 1/2 cups frozen chopped onion, celery, and pepper blend, thawed
2 (15-ounce) cans no-salt-added dark red kidney beans, undrained
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added pinto beans, undrained
1 (15-ounce) can chunky chili tomato sauce

Preparation

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large Dutch oven. Place over medium-high heat, and cook until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain.

Return meat mixture to pan; add kidney beans and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat, and serve immediately.

Tip: Look for turkey breakfast sausage in the refrigerator section with the other tubes of breakfast sausage or in the freezer section of the grocery store.
