Fall is HERE and also are all the fallen leaves ( which I need to rake) – but instead I am going to eat this bowl of chili 😉 Whenever I make chili I always use beef but we are trying to be a bit healthier in my house so I decided to use turkey ( I do not havea ton of experience with ground chili) but I will say it ended up being super yummy and I did not miss the beef a bit.

What I love most about this chili is that it is SO simple to make – plus you can keep it on low and let it simmer all day. I use a dutch oven on the stove top. This recipe is also naturally gluten free.


This is everything I used – I love adding in as many different beans as possible to increase the protein in the dish. I added in of course some cheese. Cheese I think should be in every meal 😉 This dish is basically throwing everything together in a cooking dish and let cook. It really is that easy. I did not add in onions because Eric hates them – if I was making this for a “normal person” I would add about 1/2 cup of onions to this chili.


If you do make the The Best Turkey Chili Ever make sure to comment and let me know what you think 🙂 I seriously cannot wait to make this dish again.
