Turkey and Black Bean Chili

Take advantage of packaged seasoning mixes, such as the chili mix called for below. Seasoning mixes are great because they include a number of spices in one package so they cut down on the time it takes to measure individual spices. We used canned black beans here but pinto or kidney beans are equally good.
