Crock Pot Turkey Chili

One of our favorite meals this time of year is a steaming bowl of chili. Something about the cooler air makes this dish ideal when you want something that's warm and fills you right up. It's also perfect to make in a large amount and can easily be frozen and reheated for later. This recipe from The Everygirl made it so easy - just throw everything in a crock pot, wait a few hours and there you go! Enjoy it on your back porch or serve it while watching football. This is a recipe we'll definitely have on repeat throughout the next several months!


1 pound of ground turkey (or beef if you prefer)
2 onions chopped
2 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cans of tomato sauce
2 cans of drained and rinsed kidney beans
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 cup of chili powder
1 tbs of cumin
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a skillet, add a little olive oil cooking spray and brown the ground beef until it is fully cooked. (This takes about 7-8 minutes.)
2. Place the cooked ground beef in the crock pot along with all of the other ingredients.
3. Mix everything up together with a large spoon.
4. Place the lid on the crock pot and let it cook for 6-7 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high.
5. Season with salt and pepper, top with whatever toppings you like and enjoy!

We served up our chili with a dollop of sour cream and cheddar cheese, but any of these toppings would be a fantastic addition!

Optional toppings:

- Cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
- Avocado
- Cilantro
- Black olives
- Chopped green onions
