Print this recipe
Turkey chili brings with it all the goodness of regular chili, with the exception, of course, that it uses lean ground turkey instead of beef. That's good for those who are looking to cut down on their red meat or just want to mix things up a bit. Add to that green peppers, sweet corn, tomatoes, and lots of spices, as in the recipe that follows, and you've got yourself one great pot of chili.
The best thing about this chili is that it makes a lot, which is awesome because it tastes even better the next day after all those flavors have really mingled together. It also freezes beautifully for a quick reheat on those busy weeknights. There are so many great things about this turkey chili, you may find it hard to pick your favorite one!
