Fuel for the Running

Turkey Chili
After the buddy run last night I stopped by the grocery store to pick up some "high potassium foods" in hopes of avoiding leg cramps this season. I grabbed some dried apricots, an avocado and bananas (obvious). By now it was after my usual dinner time & I was getting hungry - never shop when hungry, right? I wanted something quick & easy but I also wanted to cook something that would make good leftovers for meals the rest of the week. Ground turkey was on sale... I was inspired. What's got more protien, fiber, flavor & spice than a pot of chili?

So here's my recipe:
1.25lb ground turkey
2 pkts of Chili spice (one wasn't enough)
1 14oz can of black beans (rinsed)
1 14oz can of dark red kidney beans (rinsed)
1 14oz can of whole kernel corn (rinsed)
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (with liquid)
1/2 small can of diced jalepenos

Brown the meat, add spice packs & all other ingredients. Heat & serve or simmer until the flavors meld to your preference.

If you want to fatten up the dish top with chopped red onions, sharp cheddar cheese &/or sour cream.
