Fergies Bomb Turkey Lentil Chili

I had a crazy busy day today and knew I would not have time to make dinner.  I threw these ingredients in my pressure cooker and crossed my fingers. Don't worry if you don't have a pressure cooker... you can make this in a crock pot or even stove top.  

1 Lb Ground Turkey or Ground Turkey Breast 
1 Whole Onion, Diced
3 Carrots, Peeled and Diced
3 Celery, Diced
1 1/2 Cups Lentils, Uncooked 
5 Cups Water 
2 Tablespoons Tomato or Chicken Powdered Bouillon 
2 Teaspoons Paprika
2 Teaspoons Chile Powder 
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Oregano 
1 Teaspoon Crushed Pepper (more if you would like some extra heat) 

1 Can Roasted Tomatos with Green Chile (I used Trader Joes Brand but you can use Rotel) 
1 Small Bag Frozen Sweet Corn, Optional 

Stovetop Instructions:
Throw all of the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil.  
Lower heat to a simmer and cook for 45-60 minutes or until lentils are tender .

Pressure Cooker Instructions:
Throw all of the ingredients into pressure cooker.
Set to 35 minutes and allow the pressure cooker to depressurize. 

Crock Pot:
Throw all of the ingredients into the Crock Pot. 
Set to 6-8 hours. 

My daughter called it "Magic" in a bowl....!!!
