Spicy 5-Way Chili, seasoned with sweet spices and dark cocoa, has a flavor reminiscent of Mexican mole sauce. The chili originated in Cincinnati, Ohio, where chili parlors stand on many street corners. The chili is served alone, 1 way, 2 ways over spaghetti, 3 ways with added beans, 4 ways with chopped onions, or 5 ways with shredded cheese!
|3/4||pound ground turkey|
|1||cup chopped onion, divided|
|3||cloves garlic, minced|

|8||ounces hot cooked spaghetti|
|1/2||cup (2 ounces) shredded fat-free Cheddar cheese|
|1/2||cup red kidney beans, rinsed and drained|
- Cook and stir turkey in medium saucepan over medium heat about 5 minutes or until browned and no longer pink. Drain fat. Add 1/2 cup onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until onion is tender.
