Chili con Carne

This is a favorite in our house! It's cheap and easy! Pair it up with some corn muffins and you have a hearty, healthy meal! Approximately 5 servings.

1 lb ground turkey
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1T chili powder
1/2 t salt
1 t ground cumin
1 t dried oregano leaves
1 t cocoa (unsweetened baking cocoa)
1/2 t +/- red pepper sauce
1 can (160z) whole tomatoes, undrained
2 cans (15-16 oz each) red kidney beans, undrained

Cook turkey, onion, and garlic in large pot until turkey is brown; drain.
Stir in remaining ingredients, except beans, breaking up tomatoes (I use a potato masher). Heat to boiling; reduce to low. Cover & simmer 1 hr, stirring occasionally.
Stir in beans. Heat to boil. Reduce to low. Simmer uncovered about 20 min.
I serve with freshly shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream!
I have also put all ingredients in the crockpot (after cooking the ground turkey/onion/garlic) and cooked on low 3-4 hours.
