This is a great, filling recipe and I have been making it for years. It has a little kick to it, but add some cayenne pepper or jalapeños to the chili to turn the heat up!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown turkey, drain fat, and crumble.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a large pot and simmer over low heat.
  3. Cook for 2-3 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
  4. You can top it with chopped onion and low-fat cheese.
  5. NOTE: I usually only add 3/4 of the beans, but you can add as many as you like.
  6. I make mine in the crock pot, cooking it on low for 8-10 hours.
  7. Because this makes a large batch, I divide mine between two crock pots.

OMG, this chili was AWESOME! Best I've ever had! I did leave out the tomatoes (not big fans), and the chili was INCREDIBLY spicey! Next time I will not put in 3 tbsp of chili powder, I like the spice, but kiddos couldn't eat it. Also, for anyone doing WW, w/out the tomatoes, I got about 7 (1C) servings at about 5 points ea. Def a winner in my book! Thanks for sharing!
