As soon as it gets chilly outside, the crockpot has a permanent place on our countertop. Last night, I made Chili and had enough left over to feed an army.
So we don’t get sick of it, I do two things:
I freeze half of it in a huge mason jar for dinner down the road.
I also recreate my leftovers so that our family doesn’t get sick of the same old thing! Tonight, I’ll be adding a little curry and cheese to make stuffed peppers.
If you’re a crockpot fan like we are, you’ll love this recipe. Listed at the bottom is a quick and easy way to recreate your leftovers!
Simply Delicious Turkey Chili
With minimal prep, this one-pot turkey chili will easily be one of your go-to comfort meals. This incredible, perfectly spiced chili is made with lean ground turkey, kidney beans and corn. It's guilt and gluten-free, making it the perfect meal on a chilly night.
Using medium heat, sauté onion, garlic and peppers for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add ground turkey and break up the meat; cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, garlic salt and worcestershire sauce. Stir.
Add tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans and corn. Stir.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer chili mixture for 30-45 minutes, stirring every few minutes until chili thickens and flavors come together.
Feel free to taste test and add more spices to your liking.
Garnish, serve and enjoy!
Slow Cooker Instructions:
If you make this recipe in a slow cooker, reduce the chicken broth to 1/2 cup. Brown the turkey and onions before adding to the slow cooker. This makes a simple and delicious tailgating or football party recipe!

In next to no time, you can whip up a different, yet delicious meal.
Stuffed Peppers: A great way to put a spin on leftovers from this meal is by adding a little curry, some whole grain rice and stuffing a pepper. Cut off the top of a bell pepper, remove seeds, stuff pepper half full with chili, layer a small amount of cheese and fill remaining space with chili. Top stuffed pepper with small amount of cheese. Place in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until pepper softens and center is warm.
