- Add turkey and remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pot and cook until crumbles are no longer pink.
- Add sautéed vegetables and remaining ingredients to the pot and stir.
- Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour. Stir occasionally to prevent ingredients from sticking to the pot.
- Remove bay leaves before serving.
- If desired, add red chili pepper flakes for added spice.
- Pumpkin replaces tomatoes and tomato sauce in this recipe. Follow the recommended portion size to keep potassium within an acceptable range for a low potassium kidney diet.
- Beans are high in potassium and phosphorus. Limit recipe to 1 cup. Optionally, you can omit the beans to further reduce potassium and phosphorus.
- Serve chili over rice or with low-sodium crackers. If desired top with chopped chives or cilantro and a spoonful of sour cream or Greek yogurt.
- If you are on a lower protein diet make the recipe with 1 pound of ground turkey and reduce to 8 portions. Protein is 17 mg per cup.
