turkey chili recipe

We love this simple & quick Turkey Chili recipe, especially on a cold, "chili" night!  It's healthy, gluten-free and can even be dairy-free without adding the (optional) toppings. And it makes a great leftover for the next day!


1 lb. ground turkey meat
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups of water
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup of sweet corn
1 teaspoon olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for spice)

Toppings (optional)
- Shredded cheddar or white American cheese (our fav!)

- Plain, non-fat greek yogurt (tastes just like sour cream, but healthier!)


1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add turkey, onion, bell pepper, and garlic.
2. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until turkey is fully cooked.
3. Add cumin, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper; stir and cook for 1 minute.
4. Stir in 
diced tomatoes, kidney beans, corn, tomato paste and water; bring to a boil.
5. Reduce heat to low, cover and gently simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Serve (with optional toppings) and enjoy!
