Ground turkey is a good choice for meatballs with good flavor and texture but less fat than those made with ground beef and/or pork. A touch of sugar in the chili brings out the flavor of the vegetables.

Ingredients

MEATBALLS

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 egg

CHILI

  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1x1/4x1/4-inch strips
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (28-oz.) can whole tomatoes, undrained, cut up
  • 1 (15.5-oz.) can great northern beans, drained
  • 1 (14 1/2-oz.) can ready-to-serve chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, combine all meatball ingredients; mix well. Shape into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls.
  • 2
    Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add meatballs; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until browned on all sides and no longer pink in center.
  • 3
    In Dutch oven or large saucepan, combine all chili ingredients; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; add meatballs. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  • A Dutch oven is a heavyweight cooking pot with a lid for slow simmering. The standard size is 5 quarts. Dutch ovens can be cast iron, aluminum alloy or stainless steel, and some have a nonstick finish. Choose a Dutch oven with a heavy bottom, a tight-fitting cover and, if possible, overproof handles. You'll find it's the pot you reach for when preparing stews, chilies, sauces and more.
