Low Calorie Turkey Chili

With all the baking and candy making I have been doing, it is time to make something healthy and Low Calorie.  My daughter doesn't like ground beef.  This is a nice alternative for her!
In a large skillet or Dutch oven spray a few sprays of cooking oil.  Saute the onions and garlic over medium heat until clear.  Add lean ground turkey, cook about 6 minutes, until it is browned.  Make sure to keep breaking apart the turkey meat.
Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce and spices.  
Rinse and drain the beans in a colander and 
add to the pan.
 Simmer for 20 minutes.
I like to serve this with a little light sour cream 
and a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese. 
With a side of corn bread
This is a favorite on a cold winter night.  I hope you enjoy it!
