I don’t know about you, but I love a great pot of chili. Even though we don’t get many cold days in the Deep South, oh well, crank the AC down and we can pretend. Since it is Fall and it is getting cooler in other parts of the country this would be a great and healthier addition to your dinner menu. The kids love it and it is hearty & healthy!

Healthy Slow Cooker Turkey ChiliIngredients

  • 1 lb. raw lean ground turkey

  • Plain Greek Yogurt (optional topping)
  • Green Onions, diced (optional topping)


  • Cook the turkey, onion, bell pepper, and garlic in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until turkey browns. Drain; discard fat.
  • Add all ingredients and turkey mixture to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours (or warm until needed).
  • Optional: Add a dollop of plain greek yogurt and top with green onions before serving.
  • ENJOY!!


This recipe is not considered FULLY clean with the canned ingredients but, for simplicity sake I left the canned goods in the recipe. If you want to go fully clean buy a bag each of black and kidney beans. Cook them ahead of time and add them to the slow cooker when needed.

Until next time…
