Dotti’s Turkey Chili

Dotti’s Turkey Chili

This is a recipe I threw together yesterday and it turned out so good I had to share it with all of you.  I love adding Sprouted Rice And Quinoa Blend by TruRoots to the mix as it is healthy and adds thickness to the chili.  This time I also used a dry Tortilla Soup Mix for the seasoning, along with chili seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes.  We loved it.  I served it with Parmesan Muffins.
