Crock Pot Turkey Chili

2 lbs. Lean Ground Turkey
1 Medium Onion
2 Jalapenos
1 Red Pepper
1 Can Black Beans (drained & rinsed)
2 Cups Corn (frozen or canned)
2 Cloves Crushed or Minced Garlic
2 Cans Diced Tomatoes
1 Packet of Chili Seasoning
2 TBS Chili Powder
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Pepper
1 Container Light Sour Cream
1 8oz Bag of Low-Fat Shredded Cheddar or Mozzarella Cheese
Nacho Chips or Crackers (optional)

Brown ground turkey in a large pan on medium heat. Once the meat is browned, drain and place in the crock-pot. Finely chop onion, red pepper, garlic and jalapenos (Note – the spiciness of your chili depends on how many or how few jalapeno seeds are added in the mix. If you are sensitive to hot foods, then remove all of the seeds from the peppers). Add all three ingredients into the crockpot. Next, add in black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, chili packet, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir all ingredients together well and set on low for approximately 4-6 hours or once vegetables are tender. Add in more chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese and chips as desired.
