Turkey Chili (thick version)

It's winter and we need comfort food! But not the fried, heavy, oil laden kind. We need the cozy, healthy, easy to digest, warm your insides, kind! Follow this recipe for a lean option to add to this weeks cart. This is yet another recipe shared from a friend so her comments on how she made it her own are quoted below. I encourage you to make adjustments that fit your preferences. 

We didn't follow directions entirely - didn't use squash at all but added a bit of cumin, used only 1 28 oz can offire roasted diced tomatoes, used kidney beans, forgot about celery, added garlic and carrots, no peppers, and prob about half the amount of broth they suggest so it would be thicker. It is banginggggggg!! <3 <3
