Turkey Chili

1 pound ground turkey
1 medium onion/diced
1 clove chopped garlic
2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes/I use tomatoes with green chilies.
2 8 oz cans tomato sauce
1 Tbs taco seasoning
2 cans black beans (can use any bean of choice, but keep in mind the darker the bean the lower the glycemic index)  Beans are a wonderful source of protein and fiber.  You can also use a variety of beans in the same soup.
16 oz water
Brown the ground turkey and onion in a skillet. (did you know ground turkey is 50% less fat than ground beef?)
In a crock pot or large soup pot add all the remaining ingredients juice included. (do not drain)
If you use a crock pot no need to tend to the soup at all and can stay on all day.  For a soup pot stir occasionally set on a medium low setting for 3 hours.
Top with a dallop of fat free sour cream, some low fat shredded cheddar cheese and a few
crispy tortilla strips or chopped green onion.
