  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Lean ground turkey 2 Pound (94% lean)
  Garlic 12 Clove (60 gm), peeled, finely chopped
  Sweet red peppers 1 Pound, dice
  Green peppers 12 Ounce, dice (Food You Feel Good About Cleaned and Cut Diced)
  Onion 12 Ounce (Food You Feel Good About Cleaned and Chopped)
  Mexican chili powder 2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Worcestershire sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh bay leaves 6 (or 2 dried)
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 2 Teaspoon
  Canned diced tomatoes 29 Ounce (2 cans (14.5 ounce each))
  Chicken stock 1 Carton (1 l) (Food You Feel Good About Chicken Culinary Stock)
  Great northern beans 31 Ounce, drained, rinsed (2 cans (15.5 ounce each))

1. Heat oil in large stockpot on medium-high until oil faintly smokes. Add ground turkey. Crumble and sear until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
2. Add garlic, peppers, and onions to browned ground turkey. Stir in chili powder, salt, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, bay leaves, cloves, and cumin. Saute a few minutes until onions and peppers are soft.
3. Add tomatoes and stock. Bring to a simmer.
4. Add beans and continue to simmer, uncovered, on medium-low about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5. Remove and discard bay leaves.

6. Ladle chili into warmed bowls and serve with crusty bread or corn bread or serve over rice if you like.

Chili tastes even better the next day when the flavors have melded, so save some for leftovers or make it a day ahead.
