Healthy Turkey Chili

Fall is finally showing its true (beautiful) colors this week. Even the cool, dreary fall days are welcome because they make me want to have comfort food spilling out of my kitchen. Nothing smells better than a crockpot full of Turkey Chili. Is there a scented candle that smells like chili? Because there should be. I fell in love with this healthy version of Turkey Chili a few years ago for three reasons: 1. It is DELICIOUS. 2. No guilt. 3. The sweet potatoes. Promise me you’ll add this to your comfort food must-make list this fall!

How Do you Make Healthy Chili?

Well great question! Check out the below video for a condensed tutorial or you can scroll to the very bottom of this post for the written recipe. For a step-by-step tutorial (with my voice guiding you through the entire process!) search “Healthy Turkey Chili” on the Pip and Ebby cooking app!

Is Turkey Better Than Ground Beef?

If you are able to find a lean ground beef like 90/10, that works great, too! In general, turkey is a much leaner meat but be sure to check the fatty to lean ratio for the healthiest option.

I also have a 5-Ingredient Chili that will blow you away with its ease. Or my World’s Best Chili that just can’t be beat.

I am hoping you all are having a wonderful fall week, dreary or not. Thanks for being here!
