This is a slow cooker recipe. This is a lower-fat chili because it is made with ground turkey breast. Make sure that you are buying ground turkey BREAST and not ground turkey, which includes both light and dark meat and will be higher in fat.
If you use ground beef instead of the turkey, you won't need the oil to cook it in.
This is a variation of Hopping John. It's usually a New Years Day item around our house, as the Black-eyed peas, are for good luck.And it also contains rice, which is for abundance, and pork, which is for the future.
A staple that should always be ahndy, there are so many things you can do with it. And it is better when it's homemade. To store this, refrigerate in tightly covered container up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months. Just thaw to use.
