Turkey chili 

I’ve blogged before about my obsession with the crock-pot, but I’ve yet to discuss my favorite thing to make in it: Chili.

Chili is my number one comfort food.

My mom used to make it with mashed potatoes and I swear, regardless of the day I had, when I ate it everything was better.

When it comes to chili, I’ve found that regardless of what I throw into the crock-pot, it always turns out fantastic.

I have one all-time favorite recipe for turkey chili that is incredibly flavorful and really easy to make. 


  • spices to taste: oregano, adobo, chili powder, Penzey’s chili 9000, chipotle chili powder, pepper, cayenne pepper and garlic.
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of small white beans
  • 1 lb of organic ground turkey
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 chopped red pepper
  • 1 chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup of mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups of unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Throw the vegetables into a pan with a little bit of oil and fry until brown. Throw into the crock-pot when ready.
  2. Throw everything else into the crock-pot, set on low and cook for 8.5 hours.
  3. Serve and enjoy over a bed of rice or with tortilla chips and cheese.
