Salsa Chili


Unlike macaroni and cheese or fried chicken, chili is one of the few hearty comfort foods that’s also super healthy.

Whether you make it vegetarian with lots of beans or use high-quality meat, it’s always filled with vegetables and antioxidant-rich spices.

This approach takes it up another notch by using lean ground turkey and simplifying the process. While other recipes require hours of chopping and simmering, this one is crazy quick.

Despite the simplicity, it does still include a creative flourish: cashews. Bet you’ve never had these delicious nuts in chili before…but you likely will again.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Lean ground turkey and kidney beans (which are also a great source of iron) provide protein, and there are plenty of antioxidant-rich spices. The “comfort food” designation also may be more literal than you realize: Cashews are a great source of zinc, a mineral that plays a major role in managing the body and brain’s responses to stress.
