Healthy Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili

Apparently it's CrockPot month over here!  Due to the 3° weather we are currently experiencing (literally), I wanted to make chili.  I couldn't find a recipe that was both healthy AND tasty...until now!

This 3 bean chili uses ground turkey breast and couldn't be any easier to make. The only thing I added was a little bit of fresh garlic when I was browning the turkey.

I topped mine with a dollop of plain, non-fat greek yogurt (in place of sour cream), cheddar cheese, onion, and fresh cilantro. I have to say, the toppings made the dish for me. So use all or whatever combination you like, but don't skimp!
