Chili Con Turkey

     I wasn't sure what to expect as far as flavor when I decided to make this dish by David Zinczenko. I liked all the ingredients, but it just seemed like other skillet mixtures I've had before.
     Now, that I've made it, I can see that it has a ton of flavor. It's pretty spicy, despite my use of a mild chili seasoning, and it's very healthy. Right after the first bite I thought, "This would be great with some cornbread." After a few more bites, I could see that would just be way too much food. This skillet dish is very filling with the beans and brown rice.
      Feel free to substitute ground beef or whatever for the ground turkey. That's our family preference, but not everyone may feel the same way.

1 lb ground turkey
1 can Rotel (or store brand)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can sweet corn, drained
1 pkg dried chili mix
1 Tbl flaxseed
1/4 cup water
1 cup cooked brown rice
  • Brown turkey over medium high heat.
  • Add everything else except the rice and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. 
  • Mix in the rice right before serving.
