Spicy Turkey Chili and Healthy Cornbread

Yum! This spicy turkey chili and healthy cornbread combo is to die for on dreary days. I took this chili recipe and changed it up quite a bit, and here is where I found the cornbread recipe.
Spicy Turkey Chili

1. Seed, chop and set aside
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 red onion
2 large garlic cloves
2 jalapenos
1 habanero (leave this out if you can't handle the heat)

2. In a large pot bring these ingredients to a boil
2 cans kidney beans
1 can tomato paste (8 oz)
2 cans tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 can diced tomatoes (drain)
1 can corn (drain)
2 cups water

3. While bringing your canned stuff to a boil, brown 1 - 1.5lbs of lean ground turkey

4. When your pot of canned ingredients is boiling, add the chopped veggies and ground turkey. Also add the following:
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1.5 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons masa harina (if you don't have any do 1 T corn meal and 2 T flour)

5. Simmer on low for 1 hour stirring occasionally. Add more water if needed. 

This recipe yields about 10 servings and freezes great!

Healthy Cornbread

1. Sift dry ingredients.
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
1/4 cup honey
2 egg whites
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup applesauce

3. Mix the contents of both bowls together. Pour in a greased 9x13 pan.

4. Bake for 20 minutes at 400.
