Green Pepper Turkey Chili

Our garden has been hit and miss this year. The zucchini didn't do well at all but have had great luck with cherry tomatoes! We have also been having good luck with peppers...but I don't always know what to do with them cause I'm not a huge pepper fan. Usually chicken fajitas are my go to when I have peppers to use up but we have had those quite a bit recently. So I decided to add the peppers to chili and see how it turned out. Then today I saw this blog post about green pepper chili....so I'm not the only one doing this...hehe! Here is my version...

Ingredients:
1 lb ground turkey
1 small onion diced
2 green pepper diced
1 clove garlic pressed or finely chopped
1 large can tomato sauce {32 oz, I think}
1 can kidney beans
1 package chili seasoning mix
1 tsp dried oregano

Directions:
Brown the turkey, drain and return to cooking pot. Add rest of ingredients and heat til bubbling, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. {I cover pot while cooking so chili doesn't pop all over the stove!}

The hubs and I really enjoyed it! Might be my new way to fix chili from now on.
