Slow Cooker Turkey Chili. The BEST turkey chili made healthier and in the slow cooker! Hearty, thick, filling and full of flavor!
This chili is the perfect comfort food to serve during the colder months. It is also made healthier with ground turkey + more veggies and beans.
I used both black beans and kidney beans in this soup and also added in some frozen corn.
This chili is super easy to throw together and only takes 10 minutes of prep time. Simply brown the turkey in a skillet and toss it in the slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4 hours.
This chili also makes tons of leftovers and is freezer friendly! I loaded this healthy turkey chili up with tons of Mexican flavor: black beans, corn, cilantro and chipotles. The chipotles add in a nice smokiness and heat to this chili.
I don’t like using taco packets in my chili. I like adjusting to taste and use the seasonings I have in my pantry. I like to use chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano.
Serve this chili with shredded Mexican cheese, cilantro, tortilla strips, sour cream and enjoy!
