Turkey Chili

The weather this week has been beautiful- sunny with highs in the 70s.  We have spent hours each day playing and eating outside. 

With all this sunshine and warmth, I'm not sure why I decided to make chili for supper last night.  But I did and it was great.  I served it with grilled cheese. 

1/2 lb ground turkey
1 yellow onion, diced
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, divided
salt and pepper
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can chili beans (I buy Private Selection Organic Hot Chili Beans- no weird meat parts or chemicals)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can crushed tomatoes
3/4 cup frozen corn

Brown turkey in a skillet with onion, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and a dash of salt and pepper.  Drain and add to crock pot.  Stir in remaining ingredients except for cayenne pepper and salt and pepper.  Heat in crock pot on low for a few hours until bubbling.  Stir in remaining 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and salt and pepper to taste.
