The best "diet" chili you'll ever have

Drumroll please! Today I present the best diet food you can have on the 4-hour diet. Heck, I should call it the "Ricky's Chili Diet" because that's what I like to eat! It's yummy and good for you. Best of all, no cheating required to make it awesome. Let's go!

- ground turkey meat, 99% fat free
- Red Kidney Beans
- 1 can of diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers
- 1 small onion, chopped
- Green bell pepper, chopped
- Cumin, 1 1/2 tablespoon
- Garlic, 1 tsp
- chili power, 1 1/2 tablespoon
-Cayenne Pepper, to taste (1/2 tsp to start)
-Paprika, 1 tsp
-Olive oil
-salt and pepper to taste

First, we chop! Dice that onion and pepper before tossing it in a large pot with some olive oil that's been chilling on medium heat. In a separate pan, start to brown the turkey, also with the help of some olive oil in the pan.

Now, enter the can opener! After the onion and peppers get a bit soft, add in the can of tomatoes with all the juices. Then, drain the kidney beans before adding them in the vegetable pot as well. By now, that turkey should be nice and, white. If so, add that into the pot as well.

Third, we season! Add in your seasoning, please adjust the hotter spices like chili powder and cayenne to your heat preference.

Let it cook now for as long as you want. It could be 5 minutes or 5 hours. We normally have it sitting between 5 minutes to an hour. But when it's time to eat...

It's delicious!
