Black beans are a great staple in any pantry. Not only do they have a great flavor, but it's hard to imagine anything that tastes this good is also good for you!
Coat a small Dutch oven with cooking spray. Add olive oil. Heat over medium-high heat.
Add onion and celery. Sauté until tender. Allow to cool slightly.
Place mixture in blender. Drain beans, reserving liquid. Add half the beans with all the liquid to blender. Process until smooth. Stop once and scrape down sides.
Return mixture to Dutch oven. Add remaining beans, tomato, chilies, turkey, and chili seasoning. Cook over medium heat until heated thoroughly.
Ladle into bowls. Top evenly with yogurt. Garnish with pepper strips, if desired.
Black Bean Trivia
Black beans are commonly referred to as turtle beans, probably because of their shiny, dark, shell-like appearance. Black beans have rich flavor and a velvety texture. In addition to their high fiber and protein content, a new study finds that beans, particularly black ones, are a rich but overlooked source of antioxidants.
