Place a large pot over medium heat. Add canola oil and onion; sauté onion until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Add garlic and carrots; cook until garlic is softened, about 1 minute.
Add turkey to the pot, and cook until browned, breaking it up as it cooks. Be sure that the ground turkey is completely cooked through.
Add chili powder, paprika, red pepper flakes, cumin, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, beans and green pepper to the pot; bring the mixture to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat and simmer until turkey and vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper; garnish with scallions, if desired. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Serve, and enjoy!
