Turkey Chili Recipe

Turkey Chili Recipe

This Turkey Chili Recipe is super quick and super easy.  The recipe is made with ground turkey, but I am sure if you make it with ground beef it would taste just as good.  It calls for 2 different types of beans – kidney and black beans as well as corn.  Honestly, you can mix in whatever beans you have on hand. You can even add some green peppers to the mix if you like. That’s what I love about chili…you can make it however you want and it always has a great flavor.

Top it with shredded cheese, sour cream and even hot sauce if you like a bit of spice.

You can easily adapt this recipe for a crockpot or even an Instant Pot cooker.
