Southwestern Turkey Chili (ONE POT!)

With all of the holidays coming up, you’ll be doing lots of cooking, not to mention, you’ll be indulging an awful lot. This is a quick, simple, healthy recipe to help you stay on track and not be one of the average Americans that gains 7-10 pounds between now and January 1st!!

I made a big pot. You can easily cut the recipe in half. But, if you’re already making it, why not make a lot of it so you can store in the freezer or eat later in the week?

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion

3 cloves crushed garlic

2 lbs ground turkey (or ground chicken/beef)

1/3 cup chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon of salt and pepper

1 tablespoon chili powder (optional)

42 oz of diced tomatoes

2 green peppers, diced

1 small can of corn

1 can of black beans

1 can of kidney beans

1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Saute the onions and garlic until fragrant. Add the meat, salt, pepper and cilantro. Stir and cook until the meat has browned. Drain the fat. Add chili powder… and even some red pepper flakes if you’d like!

2. Now add the rest of the ingredients. Corn, green pepper, black beans, kidney beans and diced tomatoes. Stir and cook for at least 20 minutes, but you can leave it on simmer for a few hours if need be. You can also make this in a crock pot!

I know I make easy recipes, but seriously, only 2 steps to this one!! Be creative! Add some other stuff and let me know your variation of it!


Have a very happy and thankful Thanksgiving 🙂
