Slow Cooker Turkey Chili is a leaner chili than when beef is used but is still hearty and flavorful. Put this in the crockpot, go about your day and come home to a delicious bowl of chili.
Slow Cooker Turkey Chili
Last week was a sad day in my house because my slow cooker died. I had a moment of panic considering I use it a lot during the week for meals like this Slow Cooker Chicken Curry or Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup.
I especially love using my slow cooker when we have a busy day ahead of us and know that getting a meal on the table will be a struggle. I love taking the guessing game out of that daily question of “what is for dinner?”
Since fall is officially here I knew I had to hurry up and buy a new one. With fall comes football, tailgating, comfy sweaters, boots, apple picking & of course chili. Today’s Slow Cooker Turkey Chili is a go-to recipe I make in the fall and winter for football games or an easy dinner during the week. You can use ground turkey or beef depending on your preferences.
We are a house divided because Mike prefers chili with beef and I like a lighter version using turkey-either tastes great!
This recipe makes a big pot of chili for leftovers which are great for freezing and lunches during the week. I think chili actually tastes better a day or two later when all of the flavors have really soaked together. It is hearty and packed with beans, corn and vegetables!
This chili has many uses–maybe as a dip for chips at a party, or a combination of sharp cheddar cheese melted with a few scoops of this chili or how about chili-dogs? Whatever you fancy this recipe is one to keep on hand when you want to put a hearty, warm dish on the table at the end of a busy day.
