Mist slow-cooker insert with cooking spray. Warm 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and chili powder and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in turkey, mixing well and breaking up large clumps of meat. Stir in tomatoes and broth. Add beans, bring to a boil and pour into slow cooker.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Mix well, then stir in egg, milk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil and cheese. Pour batter over chili in slow cooker and gently spread to cover. Cover slow cooker and cook on low until chili is hot and crust is lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 hours.
Awesome recipe. I use a 2 premix cornbread packets, and garlic powder so I can use less. but upped the other spices a little. I added different types of beans, shredded squash, celery and bellpeppers. Took it to a Christmas potluck and it was a big hit. They didnt even know the vegies were in there, or that it was turkey.
I will definitely make this recipe again because of the convenience of the all-in-one slow cooker meal, plus it's a good way to substitute turkey for our usual ground beef without anyone noticing. It did get quite dry during cooking so I might add a little more broth next time. It's not the best chili I've ever tasted, but definitely enjoyable and a good dish to take to a potluck or just enjoy at home.
Loved I idea! Found it bland so added more spices to the meat; added Mc Cormick Chilli season package and found improved flavor. Not crazy for the cornbread so interested in changing that up too. This definetly has potential but needs a kick. Still served with cilantro to brighten flavor and hotsauce it was a good weekday meal.
