Janie’s Turkey Rice Chili

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Janie’s inspiration came from her mom’s co-worker, whose husband was a Season 15 contestant on The Biggest Loser. The co-worker would bring in a delicious turkey chili that Julie would rave about at home. Janie asked her mom’s friend if she could have the recipe and then, like a true little chef, added some things to make it her own.
