Gobble Gobble Up Chili

If you like your chili meaty, I dare you to give this turkey chili a try. This “crowd-pleaser” is regularly on the menu in my house.


  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced (you can never have too much garlic)
  • 1 15 oz. can of kidney beans
  • 1 15 oz. can crushed tomatoes or fresh diced tomatoes from the garden 🙂
  • 1 can of green chilies, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 cups of chicken stock


  • 2-3 Tbsp. chili powder (depending on your preference for spiciness)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, bring oil up to a medium heat and brown ground turkey.
  2. Add in onion, bell pepper, and garlic and saute until translucent. Do not drain the fat if using lean turkey (this adds to the flavor).
  3. Add remaining ingredients and cook on medium/low for 30 minutes. Stir often. This allows the flavors to meld together and reduce the liquid.
  4. Serve with whatever toppings you like. (I prefer cheese, Fritos, or yummy cornbread with jalapenos sprinkled on top).
