Hearty Corn Chili

It's amazing what the addition of corn can do for that old standby, chili. It not only adds crunch, it adds eye appeal too!
Serves 4 (1 1/2 cups)

8oz ground turkey or beef (90% lean)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 3/4 cup Mexican Style Stewed tomatoes, coarsely chopped, with juice
2 1/2 cups tomato juice
1 1/2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 teaspoon chili seasoning mix
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 oz Corn Chex, slightly crushed (3/4 cup)

In large saucepan, sprayed with olive flavored cooking spray, saute meat, onion and green pepper until browned. Stir in stewed tomatoes, tomato juice, corn chili seasoning mix and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat. Simmer, uncovered, 15-20 minutes. When serving, evenly sprinkle corn chex over top of soup bowls.
