Clean Crokpot Turkey Chili {with a kick}

Monday, September 30, 2013


Fall is here it's here it's here it's here! On Sunday I sat on the couch, nursing a Saturday Football Hangover (GO DAWGS!!), reading a book (Devil in the White City- great read, especially when it's a free e-book) with Andi wrapped in blankets with the windows open while chili cooked in the crock pot (which I got from Goodwill for $10- if you don't have access to Goodwill Amazon has great options for inexpensive crockpots here ). It smelled so delicious, tasted freaking amazing, and for like $15 could feed a small village). Here's the breakdown:

Prep Time: 20 mintues
Cook Time: 6 hours (in the crockpot though, do we count that as cook time?)
Servings: 8 hefty bowls

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey ($5.00)
  • 1 medium white onion, diced ($1.00)
  • 1 jalepeno, diced with seeds ($1.00)
  • 1 Green Pepper, diced ($.89)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes ($2.50)
  • 3 Tablespoons Tomato Paste ($1.50)
  • 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce ($1.00)
  • 1 (15 oz) can low sodium natural chicken broth ($2.50)
  • 1 can red kidney beans ($1.10)
  • 1 can black beans ($1.10)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Bay Leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey
Cook the turkey until browned. Combine the cooked turkey with all the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!!!
Step 1: Cook the turkey
Step 2: Dice and mince your veggies
Step 3: Line up your seasonings (I have to check them off because I always forget really important ones)
Step 4: Let the crockpot do the work!
