    Love to have it PNW. I make lots of soups.
    We had chicken soup last night. My weight was steady this AM.

    White Bean and Ground Turkey Slow cooker Chipotle Chili

    -Cooking spray
    - 2 lbs 99% fat free ground turkey breast
    - 1 onion (chopped)
    - 2 garlic cloves (minced) I put in 4, but I LOVE garlic
    - 32 oz reduced sodium chicken broth
    - 30 oz canned white beans (drained & rinsed)
    - 1/4 cup cilantro (coarsely chopped) Not everybody is a fan of cilantro...parsley is a decent substitution
    - 3 tbs fresh lime juice
    - 1 tsp ground cumin
    - 1 tsp dried oregano
    - 1 tsp chili powder, chipotle variety

    Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook turkey, onion and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until turkey is browned.

    Add turkey mixture and remaining ingredients to a 3 1/2 quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting for at least 4 hours. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

    I always add a bit of corn starch to thicken it up a bit, and I tend to go a bit heavier on the spices. Definitely more of a soup than a chili, but it freezes nicely. Not bad for a ZERO POINT meal!!!

    One difference will likely be that I will probably use ground rabbit (as that is what is in my freezer.) If you don't want to know; don't ask.;)

    Got a rabbit in the Crock Pot now for a healthy low-cal stew tonight.
