Healthy Turkey Chili Recipe

Healthy Turkey Chili Recipe, turkey chili, healthy recipe, healthy meal idea

Mmmm chili! This is my loaded one of a kind healthy turkey chili recipe. It is super versatile, so add and take away whatever you like! This started off as vegetarian style, but I think the turkey gives it a great touch. The great thing about this is you pre-cook a few things (for better flavour) and dump it in and you are done!

This is also a great meal to prep and put into a freezer bag and dump it in the crock pot when you feel like it.

Tip: Makes a great nacho topping or Tortilla chip dip.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 4 hours on high
