Turkey Cowboy Chili

"My sister in law gave me this recipe and I tweaked it a little to my tastes. It is a quick and easy chili that can be ready in one hour - start to finish. You can use ground beef if you'd like. I just dislike the flavor of it, so use extra lean ground turkey instead. I will also note that this is a completely dairy free recipe if that is an issue for you :) Enjoy and let me know if you like it ! *****I like to load up all my recipes with veggies. This is NOT necessary if you're not a veggie fan!"

Ready In:




  • Fry the bacon pieces in the large pot you will be using for the chili. Once it is to your liking, add onion and turkey (and garlic if using fresh) and cook until turkey is browned. Season turkey to taste while it is cooking.
  • Now add everything else, including the rest of your seasonings. Simmer, covered, on medium heat for about 45 minutes (or until potatoes are soft), stirring about every ten.
  • Done! Quick, easy, and you get your meats and veggies all in one tasty meal! This recipe goes great with the frozen "crusty french" rolls that pillsbury doughboy sells.

I'm currently a SAHM to two boys - one is two months, the other about to turn two years. I will be going to college at UAA within the next year and a half, sew fitted cloth diapers and AIO's when I can. I also learned how to sew a ring sling and made a GORGEOUS one to help my little guy nurse better and not reflux so much (still refluxing even with dairy completely out of my diet!!). I'm also bumbling through sewing my husband a pair of fuzzy slippers... he's from Texas so Alaska is just a weeeeeee bit cold for his tastes! Etc, etc. yadda yadda... I'm a mom - a young one, but I'd like to think I'm a pretty good momma. I love biology and am hoping to get a degree in it soon and possibly become a middle or highschool (preferably AP/IB Biology) teacher. Maybe I'll just be a lab rat though! That would be awesome too :)
