Slow Carb Turkey Chili

This is a Slow Carb Turkey Chili that I modified for P90X. It's approximately a 50/30/20 meal; 50% protein, 30% carbs, 20% fat and is a good choice for Phase 1 "Fat Shredder" of P90X.

To increase carbs for other phases of P90X, try adding onions and more beans.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs 97% or 99% Fat Free Ground Turkey
  • 1 can red kidney beans (drained)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 5 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 chipotle chile coarsely chopped (it's in ethnic aisles, a small can called "chipotle chile en adobo")
  • 1 tbsp of the chipotle chile en adobo sauce

Directions:

Without Onions

  1. Over medium-high heat in a large skillet break turkey with a wooden spoon and cook until meat is no longer raw, about 3 to 5 minutes. When I double the recipe I either use two skillets or cook two 1.5 lbs of turkey right after the other before adding it to a large pot.
  2. Add the olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, dried oregano, and cook stirring until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in paste and Chipotle sauce and peppers, cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add broth and simmer for about 8 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes and beans.
  6. Bring to a boil.
  7. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.

With Onions

  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the chopped onions, garlic powder, chili powder, dried oregano, and cook stirring until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in paste and Chipotle sauce and peppers, cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add turkey and break it up with a wooden spoon, cook until meat is no longer raw, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add broth and simmer for about 8 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes and beans.
  6. Bring to a boil.
  7. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 10 minutes.

Dish out however much you need based on your caloric requirements. On a 2400 calorie-a-day meal plan, with only three meals, you would need about 800 calories per meal. In this case, almost 4 cups. It's easier if you spread out your meals over 5 times a day.

Cooking times are estimated.

Enjoy! Feel free to modify as necessary. Add cayenne pepper if you want more heat.
