Wendy’s Healthy Turkey Chili

Wendy's Healthy Chili

 

Nothing says New England like a cool fall night and a big pot of chili. This is an easy and simple recipe to whip up anytime. Football night or a busy weeknight meal. It’s low in fat and carbs. I do use a small dollop of real sour cream and a small amount of cheddar mixed in. In moderation, why not? It’s a favorite among my kids and their besties as you can see in this picture. The Dads had a big bowl while watching the football game. Us Moms enjoyed a bowl by the fireplace after everyone was happily full. Hope you enjoy!
