Chili is pure comfort food and so easy to prepare. This version is made with turkey and mouth-watering cubes of Canadian Cheddar stirred right in. Serve with bowls of sour cream or yogurt, chopped tomatoes and diced avocado.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey, garlic and onion, cook breaking up turkey with a spoon, for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink.
Meanwhile, in a 5 to 6 1/2 quart (5 to 6.5 L) slow cooker, combine beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, corn, carrots, chili powder to taste, cumin, hot pepper sauce and pepper. With a slotted spoon transfer turkey mixture to slow cooker and stir; discarding any fat left in the pan. Cover with lid and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours or until chili is hot and bubbling.
Stir in Canadian Cheddar cheese.
