This heart-healthy dish is low fat, high fiber and packed with protein and veggies. However, the authentic South West flavor will ensure that it is a family favorite when topped with shredded cheddar and coupled with warm corn bread.

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1.2 lb ground turkey
  • 4 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp salt/pink salt
  • 28 oz diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth

  1. Place oil in a large pot or pan over medium/high. Add chopped onion, garlic, peppers, and jalapeno to cook.

  3. Once the onions are translucent (about 5 min) add in the ground turkey. Break up the meat until it is no longer pink.
  4. Add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, and salt, then stir.
  5. Add in tomatoes, chicken broth, and beans.
  6. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for at least 20-30 minutes. You can do less time but this will give it more flavor. You can add more seasoning to your liking.
  7. Garnish! I like to add green onions, jalapenos, cilantro, sour cream or Greek yogurt, and cheese.

I often make chili with ground turkey. However, we recently had some leftover sliced turkey from a wedding reception. I came up with this quick chili recipe when trying to think of some ways to use up some of the leftover deli sliced turkey.

Chili over spaghetti.

Sauté onion and garlic until clear and tender. Add in turkey, spices, and chiles and sauté until well mixed (2-3 minutes).
