1 pound ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 package Mrs. Dash ® Chili Seasoning Mix (1.25 ounces)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup chicken stock

One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 bay leaf

2 cups canned kidney beans

2 cups canned lentils

Sour cream, for serving

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Warm cornbread, for serving


  1. Combine the turkey, onion and garlic in a medium bowl. Mix in the Mrs. Dash Chili Seasoning Mix. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to let the flavors meld. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the turkey mixture and cook until browned. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for 1 hour. Add the kidney beans and lentils and cook for 10 minutes. Serve the chili with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of cilantro and cornbread on the side.
