Spicy Chili

Since we are still recovering from all the food and sweets over the various Christmas celebrations it was good to eat a meal at home. The chili was a perfect solution. We had some Christmas returns to make, so we put it in the crockpot before we left and when we got home supper was ready. Oh and doesn't the chili look good in the new bowls Patrick got me for Christmas.

Directions: Heat a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Crumble the turkey into the hot pan and cook evenly until brown. Add all ingredients except shredded cheese. Stir to blend, then cover and simmer over low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. You can also a crockpot to simmer the chili for 2-4 hours on low. Remove from heat, ladle into bowls and serve topped with cheese.
