Three Bean Turkey Chili

After returning home from my Dad's annual fantasy football draft, it struck me that summer's end is near. The thought of bearing another East Coast winter gave me goosebumps, I needed something to remind me that winter isn't all that bad. Nothing warms you up and goes better with sunday football than hearty chili.

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 lb lean ground turkey breast
1/4 cup chili powder (a little less if you prefer mild chili)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons oregano
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons cumin
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 4 oz. cans diced green chilis
1 12 oz. can garbonzo beans (rinsed and drained)
1 12 oz can kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
1 12 oz. can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cups of chicken broth

Heat a large pot on medium heat. Add olive oil. Saute onion and garlic for about 5 minutes until they are soft. Add the turkey and cook through. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer over low heat for 45 minutes.
