How To Make Crock Pot Turkey Chili
Confession. Slow cooker recipes were never really my favorite. But that has changed. I find now that with our busy farm life, using the slow cooker is a real time saver since I can prepare everything in the morning and come home to a fully cooked meal.
Finding the right ingredients definitely makes it all the better. Chili is the perfect comfort food during the colder months. I lightened up my traditional recipe by substituting lean ground turkey for ground beef.
Kitchen Essentials For Crock Pot Chili
In my opinion, turkey can be a little bland, but I kicked up the flavor by sautéing the ground turkey with Frontera Ground Beef Taco Skillet Sauce. Using sauces like this is the perfect way to flavor the turkey. My family didn’t even realize it was turkey. Just call me sneaky.
A chili is not chili without a generous amount of beans. I added a can of Wholesome Pantry Dark Red Kidney Beans and Black beans for some extra protein. I let the chili cook for about seven hours on low in the slow cooker. If you want to speed up the process, cook for four hours on high.
How nice is it to come home from work knowing you will have a fully cooked dinner? This Easy Slow Cooker Turkey Chili is the perfect healthy comfort food that the whole family can enjoy. Top it off with some shredded cheddar, sliced jalapeños for an extra kick and a dollop of salsa.
