"I was collecting recipes for some of my favorite childhood meals from my mom when I found directions for a wonderful basic chili. My husband and I enjoy lots of vegetables and cooking with turkey, so we just modified the recipe according to our tastes. We also like a lot of spice, so we added chili powder. Other veggies may be substituted--cabbage and mushrooms are both very good." --CL Reader
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add first 5 ingredients; cook 5 minutes or until turkey is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in chili powder and the next 8 ingredients (chili powder through tomato sauce), and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cheese and chopped onion.
