I think I have finally perfected my recipe for turkey chili and it is mmm mmm good! As soon as football season arrives, Chris starts requesting me to make this for him so 5 weeks into the NFL season, it seemed like the perfect time for it! This is the easiest dish to make...you can literally throw all of the ingredients together in a crockpot or pot on the stove and let it go! I love making chili for a few reasons...first, it's obviously delicious, second it covers a solid three dinners (and some lunches), and finally - it's extremely healthy!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 lbs lean all-natural ground turkey
- 1 red or yellow onion
- 1 green pepper
- 1 large can diced tomatoes
- 1 15-oz can kidney beans
- 2 T tomato paste
- 4 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp oregano
- garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste
- shredded cheese
- plain greek yogurt
Directions for cooking stovetop:
Heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add chopped pepper and onion and cook for about 5 minutes. Brown turkey in separate pan on medium heat, then add to pot (which should now be on medium heat). Let turkey cook with peppers and onions until cooked through. Add rest of the ingredients/spices and simmer on low until you are ready to eat (and chili is hot throughout). Top with sliced avocado, cheese, and plain greek yogurt (in place of sour cream!) Enjoy!
