Turkey Chili Over Quinoa

I finally nailed this recipe! Yum :)
1# ground turkey breast
1 small can tomato sauce (no salt added)
1 small can tomato paste
1 can each, rinsed black beans and small red beans
seasoning blend (1Tbsp each: paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes)
Mix those ingredients together right in a saucepan and cook over medium heat (covered) for about 10 minutes until the meat is cooked through.
In a separate saute pan sprayed with PAM, cook 1 diced zucchini, 1 diced sweet onion, 1 green pepper, and 3 regular carrots (NOT baby carrots) until fork tender (about 5-10 minutes). Once cooked, dump into the rest of the chili pot and mix together. Serve with shredded Mexican blend cheese and dollop of Fage yogurt. This is great over quinoa but you could easily serve it with lentil crisps (another favorite), over a baked potato, over a salad (don't knock it till you try it), or over whole grain pasta. Enjoy!
