  1. Heat a large, nonstick pot over medium-high heat and stir in the ground turkey, onion, garlic, green pepper, and red pepper. Cook and stir until the turkey is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Pour in the tomatoes, salsa, barbeque sauce, green chiles, corn, and black beans. Season with lime juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, chili powder, and cilantro. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the flavors develop, 1 to 3 hours. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on each serving.

Fabulous, full-flavored, low-cal chili! My husband said this is the best chili I have ever made. Definitely a keeper!

Excellent!! I used a crockpot and let it simmer for a few hours. I didn't have cumin and it was still wonderful; also eased up on the red pepper since I don't like a lot of heat.

Very GOOD chili. I used all green pepper and it was still very colorful. I think the bbq sauce is a key ingredient and I used Sweet Baby Rays--Hioney chipotle. Yum! As others have said it is...
