Turkey Sausage Chili

This is as usual my take on a Weight Watchers recipe. I made it on Saturday and served it to my husband and friends before a long night of Rock Band.
I love to make things in the crock-pot!! It make the house smell wonderful and the husband hardly has any cleanup after dinner. This chili is thick and full of beans. I served it with corn bread and salad. All entire the meal was only 7 points!

Turkey Sausage Chili

6 Servings
5 Points/Serving

12 oz TJ’s Smoked Turkey Kielbasa, sliced in 1/2 inch rounds
1/2 large onion chopped
5 sprays of olive oil
pinch of salt
3 grinds of pepper
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp regular chili powder
1 tsp ground coriander
1 dash of ancho chili powder
3 (14.5 oz) cans of diced tomatoes w/green chilies
2 (14.5 oz) cans of kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 oz) can of pinto beans, rinsed and drained
4 green onions, sliced for garnish

  1. Heat a dry nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage to the pan and brown on both sides.
  2. Remove the sausage and spray the pan with olive oil. Add the onion, salt, and pepper and cook until translucent. Off the heat add the spices.
  3. Place all of the canned ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
  4. For the last hour or so take the lid off and let the chili thicken otherwise it comes out a little soupy.
  5. Ladle into 6 bowls and top with onions. Each portion has just 5 points. (You can also add light shredded cheese but this will change the point value.)

So good and easy people will think you can cook.
Yummy corn bread to follow soon.
