You will love making this quick and easy recipe I adapted from a Biggest Looser program because you simply chop an onion and mince some garlic. The rest of the ingredients are in a can or box.


  • 1 onion chopped

  • 1 and 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey

  • 114.5 oz. can of roasted diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 15 oz. can of pinto beans

  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans

  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons of chopped (or pressed) garlic

  • 2 tablespoons of chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon of mustard powder

  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives to garnish


  1. Coat a large Dutch oven with a few sprays of olive oil or other cooking spray. (You can use a large saucepan with a lid if you don’t have a dutch oven.) Heat on medium-high and add the onion. Season with a pinch of salt and saute until soft and just browning a bit.
  2. Add ground turkey and cook, breaking apart the turkey until no pink remains- 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add all other ingredients except for the olives into the pot or saucepan and stir to combine. Turn the heat to high until boiling and then turn to low. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and serve into 1 cup servings and garnish with sliced olives.
