Three-Bean Turkey Chili

This recipe is from quickandsimple.com. I found it when I was looking for more recipes that used ground turkey and a crockpot. If you don't use ground turkey, I would encourage you to try it. It is readily available in the frozen food section and is almost $2.00 a pound cheaper than ground beef. Ground turkey can also be substituted for ground beef in a lot of recipes.

This recipe is also great for using items in your food storage since it requires a lot of canned goods. If you would like to use dried beans, you can substitute a 1/2 cup of dried beans. You will need to soak them overnight so they are tender.

Three-Bean Turkey Chili

1 pound ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
28-oz. can diced tomatoes with their juice
15-oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
15-oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
8-oz. can tomato sauce
4-oz. can chopped mild green chilies
1 to 2 Tbsp. chili powder
Shredded Cheddar cheese for garnish

In a medium skillet, saute turkey onion over medium-high heat until turket is not longer pink, about 5 minutes, stirring to break up meat into crumbles. Drain and transfer turkey mixture to slow cooker.

Add tomatoes with juice, beans, tomato sauce, chilies, and chili powder; mix well. Cover and cook on high for 6 to 8 hours. Serve hot with shredded Cheddar cheese and cornbread, if desired. Serves 6 to 8.

The only substitution I plan on making with this recipe is swap out the diced tomatoes for crushed tomatoes. My kids are happier and more willing to eat meals when they cannot see chunks of tomatoes!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
