Slow-cooker Turkey Chili

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 8 hrs
Yield

Makes 4 to 6 servings

The most popular recipe for chili on our site, Slow-cooker Turkey Chili features lean ground turkey, black beans, onion, corn, and fresh bell pepper. With just 15 minutes of prep time, you can throw all of the ingredients into a slow cooker before leaving for work and return 8 hours later to a piping-hot, home-cooked meal. Serve with corn chips, shredded cheese (we prefer a cheese blend of Colby and Monterey Jack), chopped red onion, fresh avocado slices, and a dollop of sour cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (8-oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (1.25-oz.) package chili seasoning mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Toppings: shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend, finely chopped red onion

How to Make It

  1. Cook first 3 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until turkey crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Spoon mixture into a 5 1/2-qt. slow cooker; stir in corn and next 7 ingredients until well blended.

  2. Cook at HIGH 4 to 5 hours or at LOW 6 to 8 hours. Serve with desired toppings.
