071 Christiana's Turkey Chili

Christiana's Turkey Chili

  • 1 LB lean ground turkey
  • 1 LB lean turkey sausage (optional)
  • 2 Cans Chili Beans or Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 Can Black Beans
  • 1 Can Navy Beans 
  • 4 Cans Tomato Sauce (or 2 Large Cans)
  • 1 Pkg Chili Seasoning of your choice
  • 1 T. Cumin
  • 3 T. Chili Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  1. Open all cans and dump into crock pot without draining. I also rinse all the cans with a very small amount of water (each) and dump that into the pot as well to get all the beans out of the bottom, etc.
  2. Mix all seasoning into the crockpot because it will mix best without all the meat in the way
  3. Brown meat, drain, and dump into the crockpot. I like to brown my meat because I can never tell when Jimmy is going to try to sneak some out during the day so it's a safety thing plus it gets rid of some of the excess fat.
  4. Set crockpot on low heat and cook for 8hrs. Stir occasionally.
Servings: Approx. 15 - 1 cup servings (it could be more but I really can't remember)

I hope you enjoy my chili recipe. It's one of Jimmy's favorites and he can still have it even after his gastric sleeve surgery. I love it because it's simple but very tasty. It also works great with lean hamburger and regular sausage although not quite as healthy. It is really a no fuss dish that you can eat several meals off of or that you can portion out and freeze for later. So it's a Win - Win!
