This is an easy, healthy chili recipe that you can throw in the slow cooker and forget about all day. Great topped with low-fat Cheddar cheese, crushed corn chips, and a dollop of fat-free sour cream. I cut back some on the spice to suit my own taste, but you can add more chili powder, or use chopped tomatoes with chili.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place turkey in the skillet, and cook until evenly brown. Coat the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray, and scoop turkey in, leaving about 1 tbsp of fat in the skillet. Brown onion in the skillet, 6-8 minutes, then add to slow cooker.
  2. Mix in water, tomato soup, tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans and corn. Season with chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper, allspice and salt.
  3. Cover, and cook 8 hours on Low or 4 hours on High.

This recipe was easy to make and delicious!! Since my family is not big on spicy food, I did not use as much spice as the recipe called for and it was enjoyed by all. I topped it with mexican mix cheese and sour cream. I look forward to having the leftovers for lunch this week!

My husband made this for us yesterday, and it was pretty tasty - a leaner twist on winter comfort food. He doubled the chili powder and red chile flakes, but I think it still needs some extra zip. I might add some finely diced jalapeno next time. We topped it with shredded cheese and had Mexican cornbread on the side. Yum!

This is the best chili ever!! I used low-sodium beans as well and it tasted wonderful. I will be cooking this all through the winter!
