Turkey Chili

I have been making this chili for years and it just seems to get better every time. This has to be one of the girls favorite things to eat! I love it because you can add tons of different vegetables and no one would ever know.

2 pounds ground turkey
1 medium onion chopped
3 celery stalks
1 orange bell pepper chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cans reduced sodium dark red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups water
2 tablespoon coconut oil

Heat large stock pot over medium high. Add coconut oil, onions, bell pepper and celery. Saute until everything is tender then add garlic and cook about 1 minute then add ground turkey and all spices. Once turkey is fully cooked add the can of tomatoes and water. Cook over medium low heat for about 2 hours. Yes I said 2 hours. The longer it cooks the more flavor it has. After that add beans and cook an additional 20 minutes or until beans are tender. I top with fat free cheddar cheese, low fat sour cream and green onions, but you can top with what you want or eat plain.
