Turkey, Black Beans and Brown Rice Chili

This has been a family favorite for years.
It is hearty and perfect for a cold winter night!

In a large saucepan:

Saute 3/4 lb. of ground turkey {or beef} in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
When meat is browned, add 1 large, chopped onion.
Cook 15 minutes.


2 cans {15 oz. each} diced tomatoes
2 cans {15 oz. each} black beans
2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon sugar

Let simmer on stove for an hour or put in crock pot for 4-6 hours uncovered.
Taste after awhile and add more of the seasonings until it is seasoned enough for your taste.  We like it very well seasoned.

Fix another pan of brown rice and pour the chili over the rice.
Delicious and filling!
