Turkey Chili with STAR

When winter weather hits, nothing warms you up better than stews, soups, and chilis.  This chili is ready in about 20 minutes but the leftovers always seem better after the spices have soaked in.  
STAR Turkey Chili
1 tbsp STAR Original Olive Oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 garlic glove minced
1lb ground turkey meat
2 can 15 oz red kidney beans
1 can roasted diced tomatoes
1 cup shredded carrots
chili seasoning packet or your own combination of chili spices
In a large saucepan add the STAR Original Olive Oil.  After it heats up add the onions and garlic and saute until onions are transparent then add the turkey, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, and cook until the meat loses its raw color, about 3 minutes. Drain if needed and return the turkey to the pan.

Add the beans, tomatoes, carrots  and chili seasoning to the mixture.  Simmer for about 15 minutes  and top with your favorite garnishes like cheese, sour cream and chives.
