So I've been trying to cook more as a part of this whole lifestyle-changing Fiona's challenge thing, and as an alternative to my more-frequent-than-I'd-like-to admit dinner of Ortega tacos with ground turkey, I decided to see if I could actually just *make* something with ground turkey.  I modified a recipe I found online, and it came out just fantastic -- really really satisfying.  So here it is for you -- possibly the best turkey chili the world has ever seen.

1 lb ground turkey
1 can pinto beans (undrained)
1 can black beans (undrained)
1 large can crushed tomatoes (I used the "fire roasted" kind, which I pretty much always like better)
1 T sweet smoked paprika (I get this stuff from Christina's spice shop in Inman Sq and it's probably my favorite cooking spice of all time)
1 T oregano
1 T cumin
1 T chili powder (I am super weak on the spicy scale, so you might want to try like an actual chili pepper or something if you weren't me)
1 t lemon pepper (probably you could use lemon or red vinegar, but I had this lying around and thought I'd try it -- added a nice kick)
1 large pinch salt
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped

In heavy bottomed pot, saute onion and garlic together until onion is soft.  Add spices, and stir, cooking for 2-3 more minutes.  Add turkey, and stir enthusiastically until turkey is cooked through and in tiny bits.  Add tomatoes and beans, and stir to combine.  Simmer about 45 minutes or until desired consistency.  Serve with brown rice, with tortilla chips, or on its own!
