Super Easy and Healthy Turkey Chili Recipe

Turkey Chili Recipe

  • Pre cook 2 packs of turkey
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes blended… I don’t like big chunks of tomatoes
  • 1 can of white beans, they aren’t filled with a sugary syrup in the can
  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained
  • 1 pepper of any colour chopped
  • 2 celery stalks
  • corn (if you choose)
  • 5 gloves of minced garlic
  • 1/2 C of chopped up onions
  • 1/4 C of chili powder
  • 1tsp cumin powder
  • 1 TBSP black peper
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper if you like
  • 3tbsp of olive oil
After cooking the turkey I let it sit on top of a strainer for a few minutes to ensure as much of the fat had dripped out as possible.
In a deep sauce pan warm your oil up. Add in the spices and then about 1/8 of the crushed tomatoes. Add in the peppers and the celery. Let this simmer for about 10 – 15 minutes to cook the veggies and open up the flavours of the spices, garlic and onions.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, cook on low until it is your desired temperate and serve! The lower you let the spices open up the better it is going to taste. I let mine simmer for about an hour after having my first bowl and I have to admit the chili today tasted even better.
If it is too thick for your liking add in tomato paste and a little water.
I made a big pot of rice to put in the fridge so whenever I am hungry I have my rice and chili ready to go :)
Hope you enjoy!

  1. Regarding the rice,it tends to get dry when in the fridge for a considerable long period of time. Before reheating, try to add some extra water to it(about one-fourth cupful) so as to help plump up the rice. It can get dry from the freeze. Chili like spaghetti sauce does get more flavorful for each passing day that it’s kept. Like your recipe. Will try it sometime.

    1. Thank you so much for the great tips Josiesvoice! I will be putting them to good use, especially with the rice :)
