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.


  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cans tomato soup
  • 3 cans beans (I used chili beans, seasoned black, and chipotle pinto), including liquid
  • 4 cups deli turkey, chopped
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder (more if you like it spicier)
  • Optional: cooked pasta


  1. Chop onion.
  2. Cook onions in oil until slightly translucent.
  3. Add other ingredients and stir.
  4. Ad

  5. Bring to a high simmer.
  6. Cover and reduce heat.
  7. Cook for 20 -25 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.
  8. Serve either alone or over a bed of cooked spaghetti.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 - 25 Minutes
