So before I start talking about this delicious turkey chili let me just say 2 things:
1. I didn’t take as many pics of the prep process as I would have liked for this recipe. I was also making the carrot cake cookies and unfortunately they cast a huge shadow. Plus this is pretty much just throwing a bunch of stuff together!
2. Does anyone know where I can find the last item here on my grocery list???
So it was for reals -1 here on Friday. Perfect day for chili…I was using a different turkey chili recipe and it was my go to, but I decided to be brave! I found this one by searching simple turkey chili on Google. It is by a woman named Amanda and has become my favorite recipe after making it 1 time. Check out the nutritional info.
I did change a couple of things, whoa I almost passed out typing that. Side note: 2 months ago I would have NEVER in a zillion years attempted to alter a recipe.
I sautéed my onions with my turkey and I had to use garlic powder because I was out of garlic ( I know right…that almost sent me over the edge) . I also let mine cook in the crockpot on low for a few hours. That is one of my favorite things about this recipe is that it is pretty versatile in how it can cook.
I was surprised at the flavor of this. I am a habitual under seasoner- it’s like a cooking disorder. I always get afraid that I’m going to over season and end up doing just the opposite. Proud to say I seasoned this one awesomely. I had enough left for lunch for everyone in the fam. And my little picky girl loved it! It was not too spicy at all.
Here are a few action shots:

My concoction waiting for said turkey and onion to be added ( I did drain the meat mixture before adding)
I topped mine with aged artisan cheddar from Aldi and plain Greek yogurt. Perfect for a cold winter dinner!
Hope you make it and enjoy!
Stay warm and healthy!
