Easy Turkey Chili

Easy Turkey Chili


There aren’t many dishes that I love more than chili. I will eat it anytime of year and anytime of day. I love it that much.

This is my second chili recipe on the blog, here is the other one. I feel like I could come up with several more versions of chili. Hmm…I might just do that.

I’ll admit this is probably my favorite chili I’ve ever made. Since we don’t eat a ton of red meat I made this one with ground turkey. Just as delicious as if I used ground beef. You could certainly use ground beef if you wanted. I try not to use too lean of ground turkey, you want some fat in your chili.

Turkey chili is the perfect dish for busy weeknights. You can have this done in less than 30 minutes. I like to let my chili simmer for at least 30 minutes, but I’ve let it only simmer for 20 minutes and it was just as delicious.

We have a tradition in our house of making chili for the Big Game. There’s something about that game that makes me crave chili and a ton of finger foods. I don’t know why…

Do you have a favorite chili recipe?
