Aunt Laura's Chili

I had to share this recipe. My sister-in-law made it when we were visiting once, and I had three bowls of the stuff. Which was ok because it's one she got from an eat healthy web sight. It's actually called Doc's Chili, but we call it Aunt Laura's Chili so everyone knows it's not the one I normally cook (which is also a really yummy one that has been passed down in my family).

Aunt Laura's Chili

-3 cups chopped yellow onion (that's a bit much for us so I only use half of an onion)
-1 lb. ground turkey
-2 Tablespoons chili powder
-1 Tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried)
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 teaspoon ground mustard
-2 Tablespoons chopped garlic (we just sprinkle in garlic powder)
-1 15 oz. can rinsed and drained pinto beans
- 1 15 oz. can rinsed and drained black beans
-3 cups diced tomatoes (or you can use one 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes)
-1 cup chicken broth
-1/2 cup block olives (we don't use these)
-1/2 cup chopped green onions (we don't use these either)

-Spray skillet w/ cooking spray
-Saute onions
-Add turkey and cook thoroughly
-Add rest of the ingredients
-Bring to a boil
-Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes
