Turkey and Brown Rice Chili

Total Time
8hrs 15mins
Prep 15 mins
Cook 8 hrs

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in 12 inch skillet over medium heat. Cook turkey and onion in oil, stirring frequently, until turkey is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Mix turkey & onion with remaining ingredients except rice in a 3 1/2 to 6-quart slow cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8-10 hours (or high heat setting 4-5 hours).
  4. Stir in rice.
  5. Cover and cook on high heat setting about 15 minutes or until rice is hot.

I think this is great, best way to have brown rice. BUT I think next time I make it, it needs more heat! Any suggestions on which spice to add more of? Also, what if one was to substitute the onion for a packet of taco seasoning mix? I think this would advance the chili aspect of this quite a bit
