This is a recipe that I married into =) Jason found this recipe in his college bachelor days. It is good and very very easy. Pretty cheap, too. It's a nice change from the heavy beef and tomato based chili recipes we love in the winter.
Summer Turkey Chili
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
1 tbsp minced garlic
2.5 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
1 (19 oz) can black beans, rinsed
1 (10 oz) box frozen corn kernels
1/2 cup uncooked white rice
1/2 cup green salsa (I just use whatever jar salsa I have)
1 cup chopped sweet onion (I skip)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Accompaniments: sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, more chopped cilantro
Heat oil in deep large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add turkey and garlic and cook, stirring to break up meat, 3-4 minutes or until browned. Add cumin, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, 30 seconds.
Stir in broth, beans, corn, rice and salsa. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender.
Remove from heat and stir in onion and cilantro. Ladle into bowls and top with accompaniments.
