It may be spring, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a nice, warm bowl of chili. From my kitchen to yours, learn how to whip up this crowd pleasing slow cooker turkey chili!
Protein packed beans.
Lean ground turkey.
A few additional pantry staples.
That is all you need to create this delicious chili. I know, I was surprised the first time I made it, too. Unlike other chili recipes that call for a laundry list of ingredients, you might be able to make this version without even running to the store!
Perfect for parties, families, or freezing for later, this slow cooker turkey chili recipe is a staple in my household. I make it at least once a month – if not bi-weekly. It’s an easy way to get a protein-packed meal using ingredients you already have on hand. But I think my favorite part is the simplicity. Just add everything to the crockpot, live your life for the next 8 hours, and BOOM. You come home to a fabulous meal.
If you’re looking at this bowl of chili you might be wondering if it’s healthy. Let’s break it down. One serving (6 total) contains around 327 calories, more than 20 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber. Coming in at just 7 grams of fat, this turkey chili is on the low-fat side. But if you plan to add cheese or sour cream, remember to factor those in.

Additionally, I love to pair this chili with a slice of cornbread. You can also experiment with other sides like tortilla chips or pita triangles. But, of course, the chili is just fabulous all on its own! You can also get creative with the recipe itself. Not a fan of black beans? Use chickpeas, pinto beans, or lima beans. You could even use all five types of beans!
