The weather is getting colder and it’s time to bust out the fall/winter meal plans! Enter our warm, hearty and super healthy turkey chili recipe. This recipe takes about 15 minutes to prepare and lasts for at least two meals for our family of four which is a bonus if you are like me and don’t like the idea of having to cook every night. I love to serve our healthy turkey chili with paleo “cornbread” muffins which are also filling, nourishing and delicious. You can check out that recipe from one of my favorite natural health bloggers here.
As with all recipes you will find on this blog, we use organic ingredients whenever possible and we suggest you do the same…Enjoy!
1 large onion (diced)
1 red pepper (diced)
1 yellow pepper (diced)
1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and diced)
3-4 garlic cloves (minced)
1 pound organic ground turkey
1 can organic chickpeas/garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can (28oz) organic whole peeled tomatoes with juice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
*Some of our favorite optional toppings include: Diced avocado, cilantro, labne
Soften onions and peppers in olive oil for a few minutes. Add the garlic and saute. Add the ground turkey and cook until white. Add your spices. While this mixture is cooking prepare your other ingredients. Add your tomatoes and their juice to a crock pot and break them into bite size pieces with a spoon. Next add your chick peas. Finally, add your turkey/veggie mixture to crock pot and mix well. Set crock pot to lowest setting and let those flavors melt together for at least 2 hours. Don’t forget to prepare your muffins and optional toppings while your chili continues to cook. Yum!
