Healthy Turkey Chili with Avocado

I made this yummy turkey chili during our deep freeze last week and it was sooo good. It tasted even better heated up a few days later.

Full disclosure, I just recently became a chili person, especially after I discovered how good it tastes topped with avocado and a pop of greek yogurt.

I was tempted to make vegetarian chili, which you can by subbing another can of beans for the turkey, but I was recovering from an aggressive bout with the flu and I wanted the extra protein. I adapted this from Eat Yourself Skinny, with some of my own additions like cocoa powder and avocado. She included calorie and point info if that interests you.
