Healthy Delicious Turkey Chili

Total Time

This is the perfect go-to recipe if you're looking for something healthy, qulick and filling. The turkey is a learner substitution for ground beef and the fact that there is very little added salt makes it a hearth healthier option. I usually serve this with shredded cheese, sour cream and cornbread on the side!

Very good chili! I only added 1/4 cup brown sugar and I think it was still a little too sweet for us - will probably skip next time. Enjoyed it with shredded cheddar, sour cream and corn muffins.

Delicious. To be repeated. Perfect with a beer and watching FIFA World Cup Women's Soccer.

This recipe was a hit!<br/>I didn't aid the brown sugar or cheese and it still came out delicious. <br/>Next time I will add more onions, beans, and peppers for the added veggies.
