Crock-Pot Turkey Chili is made in the slow cooker with three beans, lean ground turkey, bell pepper, yellow onion, seasonings and tomatoes. Top with whatever goodies your family enjoys including sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and tortilla strips.
This Turkey Chili is a family favorite for those chilly days through the winter. The simplicity and wholesome comfort makes this meal a real winner. We like to add beans to our chili to give more flavor and heartiness. The recipe also calls for ground turkey and V8 juice to give more nutritional value and less fat than a typical chili. Try our homemade Chili Seasoning and add this to the dinner lineup!
Crock-Pot Turkey Chili
Get slow cooking!
Begin by browning the ground turkey on the stove-top with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper before adding to the crock-pot. Chop the onion and bell pepper and add to the crock-pot followed by all the beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, V8 Juice, hot sauce and chili seasoning. We like to prep this chili the night before so in the morning everything just gets dumped in the crock-pot before work and we can home with a zero hassle, warm, comforting family dinner.
