10 Minute Meal: Turkey Chili

10 Minute Meal: Turkey Chili
Home-cooked meals don't have to require a massive investment of time. This muscle-building recipe offers a tasty alternative to the drive-thru.

In all honesty, how fast is fast food? Maybe you can get a shriveled, fatty burger from some eateries in less than five minutes, but that’s only because it has been waiting for you under heat lamps for an hour. At more “upscale” fast-food places, where they cook to order, you’re looking at a minimum 10-minute wait, and at the end of that you’re still ingesting mystery meat and tons of hidden high-fructose corn syrup.

But what if you could make yourself a much more wholesome meal, one in which you could vouch for all the ingredients, in that same 10 minutes? No hidden carbs, no secret fats, plated and on the fork in as much time as it would normally take to hit the drive-thru?
