Turkey Chili

The weather has turned cold and I had a craving for chili. One thing that I have never done is cooked soups and chili in small portions. I cooked the chili in a slow cooker and the smell permeated the house.


32 oz of tomato sauce (I used my homemade sauce). I have also used tomato puree.
28 oz can diced tomato
28 oz can whole tomato
2 lbs of ground turkey
2 green peppers
1 medium onion
1 clove of garlic minced
2 15 oz can kidney beans or 1 can kidney beans and 1 can black beans
2 tablespoons of chili powder
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon of cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


1. Brown ground turkey in skillet

2. While turkey is browning cut up peppers

3 Cut up onions

4. Take turkey and add to slow cooker.

5. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and whole tomatoes to slow cooker

6. Add peppers, onions and spices

7. Cook on high for 4 hours then low for 2 hours

8. Serve in bowl and enjoy

I also add some shredded cheese to my bowl because cheese makes everything better.

You can also adjust spices depending how spicy you like your chili.
