Crockpot Turkey Chili

Written By: Chris - Jan• 11•17

The temperatures are very cold here in Minnesota in the middle of winter.  After a day with this cold, there isn’t much more comforting than a steaming bowl of chili!  Even though we bundle up in heavy sweaters and blankets, eating hot foods not only keeps you warm but also keeps us happy.

I crave hot meals during the winter months due to their warming powers.  I came up with this simple chili recipe not too long ago and am almost ready to make it again!  The best part about this dish is that I always have most of these ingredients on hand.  This dish is so simple to throw together in the crockpot and just walk away!

2 lbs. Ground Turkey
1 lg. Onion, chopped
2/4 Garlic Cloves, pressed
3/4 stocks Celery, chopped
1 Orange (or any) Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Jalapeno, chopped fine
2 Bay leaves (retrieve later)
2 to 4 Tablespoons Better than Bouillion Chicken, to taste
2 Cups Water (warmed)
2 cans White Beans,  drained
2 cans chopped Tomatoes
2 to 3 Tablespoons Chili powder (to your liking)
2 to 4 Tablespoons Cumin (to your liking)
Fresh Oregano, to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a skillet, saute the ground turkey with the onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until onions become translucent and the turkey is browned.  Season with salt and pepper and add the chopped celery, peppers and combined warm water that has been combined with the Better than Bouillion chicken until dissolved.  Add these and all remaining ingredients into the crockpot and stir well to combine.

Set on high for at about three hours and then reduce heat to low and cook for at least another hour, up to six hours total stirring occasionally.


Remove the bay leaves before serving.
