Turkey Chili

Brrr... Its cold outside here in Colorado. The high today is going to be 15 with light snow and tonight a low of 1 degree. Yuck! I'm ready for spring! With it being so cold I thought I would make my famous Turkey Chili and share the recipe with you all.
The recipe is so easy and makes a lot.

Laura's Turkey Chili
1 Lrg. can of hot chili beans
1 Lrg. can of pinto beans, drained
1 pkg. of ground turkey
1 med can of diced tomatoes
1 med can of tomato sauce
1/2 white onion, minced
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tlb. kosher salt
1 Tlb. olive oil
Chili powder, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste

In a large pot with olive oil add white onion and garlic saute until soft. Add ground turkey and crumble the meat until cooked through. Add the beans, tomatoes and sauce, let simmer.
After all the ingredients have simmered awhile add chili powder, cayenne, and salt to taste. Let the chili simmer most of the day on low.
Serve with: Fritos, sharp cheddar cheese, and warm cornbread. Also a nice big yummy salad goes well.
