2 lb. ground turkey
1 large bottle V-8 or any large bottle tomato juice (I use the no sugar added/low sodium kind)
2 cans tomato sauce (again no sugar/low sodium)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Mrs. Grimes chili beans
1 c. water
1 yellow onion, diced
2 T. chopped garlic
1 T. red pepper flakes
2 T. chili powder
1 T. cumin
salt/pepper to taste
Saute onion and garlic until tender. Add ground turkey and brown. Drain some of the excess grease out of pan (won't be much if using turkey), then add all remaining ingredients and simmer until ready to eat. After about an hour, taste test to see if it needs any additional salt, pepper, chili powder, etc. Can also be kept on low in a crockpot all day for a nice hot meal to come home to!
