One of my absolute favorite fall meals is chili. A good hearty, chunky chili with cheese, sour cream, and Fritos. When I moved out on my own and wanted to make chili for the first time, I searched allrecipes.com for crock pot recipes. I'm not an anti-red meat kind of girl, so I don't know why I decided to make turkey chili, but all I know is that this recipe is easy and delicious! It does have quite a few ingredients, but don't let that scare you, it's still pretty cheap, and like I said, easy!
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 2 (10.75 oz) cans tomato soup
- 2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans, drained (I use 1 dark and 1 light for more variety)
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp. ground cumin
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 1 pinch ground allspice
- salt to taste
- Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook turkey until brown, drain.
- Coat inside of crock pot with non-stick spray. Or, I highly recommend using crock pot liners, like these from Reynolds. They prevent you from having to do practically any clean up!
- Add all ingredients and mix well.
- Cover, and cook for 8 hours on Low, or 4 hours on High.
