Turkey Chili


On cold winter days their is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of chili. This dish is easy to put on in the early morning and let cook all day making your home smell of yummy goodness. Chili is a true comfort food.


1 lrg. can of hot chili beans
1 lrg. can of pinto beans, drained
1 pkg. of ground turkey (1 lb.)
1 med can of diced tomatoes
1 med can of tomato sauce
1/2 white onion, minced
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tlbp. kosher salt
1 Tlbp. olive oil
Chili powder, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste


In a large pot with olive oil add white onion and garlic saute until soft. Add ground turkey and crumble the meat until cooked through. Add the beans, tomatoes and sauce, let simmer.
After all the ingredients have simmered awhile add chili powder, cayenne, and salt to taste. Let the chili simmer most of the day on low. Right before serving turn heat up and bring chili to a boil.
Serve with: Fritos, sharp cheddar cheese, and warm cornbread. Also a nice big yummy salad goes well.




  1. Another great one! LOVE turkey chili! That's how I make it....although I use the chili seasoning pack. I bet this is better! :) Kathy

  2. I just made this turkey chili and it's a HIT! I usually make our chili with lots of veggies and kids turn their noses up to it, but this one, THEY LOVED! I used regular chili beans vs. the hot just for them!


Thank you for your feedback!
