Turkey & Sausage Chili

We have had quite the cold winter so far, and I have been craving chili! I finally got a chance to make this last Monday, on President's Day. We snacked on it throughout this past week and it was great as leftovers. This is somewhat of a lighter version, but really delicious! It was pretty quick to make, so would be easy for a weeknight! Give it a shot and enjoy! Ingredients: 3/4 lb ground turkey 3/4 lb turkey sausage, italian style 1 cup diced onion 1 cup diced green bell pepper 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes 1 8 oz can tomato sauce ~8 oz red kidney beans (half a can) ~8 oz cannellini beans or Great Northern beans (half a can) 2 tsp chili powder 1/2 tsp cumin 1/4 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp salt shredded cheddar cheese, for topping lite sour cream, for topping chives, for topping (I was out of these) Directions: In a Dutch oven, combine the turkey, sausage, onion, and bell pepper over medium-high heat. Cook until the meat is browned and the vegetables are tender, approximately 10 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, chili powder, cumin, paprika, red pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Once done, spoon into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings!
