Turkey-Vegetable Chili http://www.davita.com/recipes/soups and stews/turkey-vegetable-chili/a/5569

It’s as American as apple pie, as old as the Wild West, and as enduring as Old Glory. Chili or Chili Con Carne as it was originally called, is not and never was Mexican. No, chili is an American invention, concocted by Texas trail cooks who needed a one-pot, all-inclusive dish that would satisfy the energy, taste and nutritional requirements of hard-working, long-travelling cowpokes. During the depression, chili parlors were found in every small town from California to Alaska. Nowadays, DaVita renal dietitian, Robin from Connecticut, updated the traditional recipe with low-fat turkey and fresh zucchini for a dialysis-friendly Turkey-Vegetable Chili that won’t break the budget.
