Slow-cooker Turkey Chili

    Good and easy recipe! We like things spicy so I mixed in a bunch of hot sauce (and I do believe it would be bland without it) which made it delish. Very healthy chili that comes together in a pinch, but make sure you watch the salt in all the canned foods! We topped with chopped cilantro and cheese, and for a bit of texture difference I added fresh chopped red bell pepper. So good!

    Wonderful! It has a sweet flavor and the textures work so well together.

    I do not usually care for chili but this recipe is amazing! My boyfriend and I LOVE it. It tastes delicious everytime we make it and it is incredibly easy to make. I would definately recommend it! The only thing we added were oyster crackers on top with the cheese.

    I made this last week and it was a huge hit with my husband! I thought he may be disappointed w/ the turkey, but he loved it, as did I. Definitely will be making this often over the winter!

    Delicious and easy to make. My husband and I love this chili and eat it with tortilla chips and a fruit salad. I add a little extra salt, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. We've had it a couple of times and will definitely have it again.

    If anyone was wondering there is about 1900 calories in the entire recipe. This was quite easy and simple to make. It was very filling and so delicious! My dad said that it was too 'chunky' and had too many vegetables for his liking but to the rest of us it was awesome!

    I made this dish tonight, using a mild Chili seasoning mix, as my family doesn't eat spicy foods. Without the spicy kick, it was missing something, so I added a little bit of nutmeg, about 3/4 tsp cinnamon, about 1T of sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt. Hey, guess what? My 5 and 7 year old kids liked it! Served with corn bread on the side. Yummy!

    Excellent chili! I omitted the corn (hubby does not like it) and I found a recipe for a chili seasoning mix instead of buying a packet in the store. This was super easy to make and so very yummy. Served it with cheddar buttermilk biscuits. Everyone loved this!

    Followed it to a "T" and it's DELISH. Great with fritos spinkled on top and some sour cream.

    This is a great recipe! I used canned corn instead of frozen corn and I added some extra chili powder. I served it with some sour cream and cheese and it was delicious. My slow cooker is on the hot side and it was ready after 2 hours on high heat.

    Simply outstanding. I've won chili cookoffs with this recipe and am constantly requested to make it for parties. So easy to make and very healthy. I use McCormicks slow cooker chili seasoning and add cumin and garlic to taste. I recommend sour cream and cilanto as toppings as they really bring out the flavor.

    This was a great chili recipe. My husband and I don't like super spicy food, so this recipe fit the bill. The flavor was great, and I didn't change anything. Will definitely be making again.

    Very Hearty and great teasting. Great for pepole with little time to cook.

    This recipe is a hit every time. It stands up to freezing really well and I usually freeze half of it and throw it back in the slow cooker next time we want it. For a lower cholesterol version I have replaced the turkey with crumpled soy, which I didn't precook, just threw right in the crock pot with everything else. Family couldn't tell the difference.

    This is my favorite go-to chili recipe. It's delicious and makes great leftovers!

    This chili is soooooooo yummy! I usually add more bell peppers to up the veggie count and also a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. It freezes well and I always try to have some on hand for days when I have nothing to take for lunch. It is also WW friendly......much healthier than other chilis I have tried (and tastier!).

    Great game day chili. I served it to a bunch of my college friends and they loved it. Not quite at hearty as beef chili but still a great meal with less calories.

    Made for the first time for Super Bowl party and this recipe did not disappoint. It is excellent and healthy - a rare combination! Even better when reheated! My children loved it with nachos. This is a recipe I will use again and again.

    I used a chipotle taco seasoning packet and minced garlic rather than a garlic clove. It was really good and had lots of flavor which surprised me since dishes with ground turkey are sometimes bland. I will definitely make this again.

    Great healthy recipe! We enjoyed the black beans and corn to make this a little different and better than other chili recipes

    One of my favorite chili recipes-always turns out fantastic!

    Delicious recipe! I usually just make chili using the directions on the chili mix packet but this took the flavor up a notch and will use this one from now on. I browned the turkey, onions, garlic night before and then dumped it all in cooker in the morning. Served with saffron/ mexican rice, sour cream, cheese - yum

  • avthor Posted: 02/04/13

    Loved this, especially the black beans and the chilli seasoning added a nice spices kick! I doubled the receipe and froze the other half! Theme little ones enjoyed it with corn bread on the side! Adding to the meal rotation for sure.

    worked really well my grandparents and wife and son love it!!!!!!

    This is a great turkey chili recipe. I cut down the fresh veg a little because I found 1 large onion and 2 bell peppers a little much for that amount of meat. My husband doesn't like beans in chili so I threw in a can of fire roasted tomatoes. We put in some hot sauce and chili powder to spice it up. Along with the cheese we serve it with jarred chopped jalapeños and sour cream.

    Nice go to healthy chili recipe. I might use more spices to kick it up a bit.

  • Cerys14 Posted: 10/01/13

    I used fresh tomatoes from the garden rather than canned and added a little broth to make up the liquid. Also I used unsoaked dried black beans and it worked! Served it in baked potatoes topped with cheese, kids loved it.

    Super easy. But you definitely need to add more spice. You can barely taste what the recipe calls for.
