I love, love, love this chili recipe! It is so good to eat on a cool day and it makes your house smell amazing! My favorite part is all of the toppings that you add to your already delicious bowl of chili….diced avocado, shredded cheese, a huge dollop of Greek yogurt, diced onion…..yum, yum, yum!
Oh, did I mention that is was a “good for you” recipe? It sure is! I prefer to use all organic ingredients but the best part is that this recipe is filled with super foods that are so good for you. Super foods include avocados, onions, garlic, beans and tomatoes.
This recipe is made on the stove but you can definitely make it in the crockpot if you prefer. See my crockpot tip at the end of the recipe and other notes for substitutions.
I hope you’ll try this recipe and let me know how you like it.
DASHING TURKEY CHILI
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 yellow onion, peeled
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 can diced tomatoes, no salt added
½ can corn, drained
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 ½ T tomato paste
1 packet of Mrs. Dash Chili Seasoning, no-salt added
Toppings: Diced avocado, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, Greek yogurt and diced red onion
Brown the ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat until fully cooked.
Meanwhile, finely chop the yellow onion and mince the garlic cloves. I prefer to use my garlic clove press for garlic.
Coat the bottom of your Dutch oven or pot with olive oil to prevent the chili from sticking.
Add cooked ground turkey to the pot.
Add diced onion and minced garlic.
Add can of diced tomatoes with juice.
Add cans of beans with juice.
Add ½ can of corn, drained.
Add 1 ½ T of tomato paste.
Add packet of Mrs. Dash chili seasoning.
Stir all the ingredients until they are well combined in the pot.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer covered for 30 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Ladle the chili into bowls and top with diced avocado, shredded cheese, diced red onion and a large dollop of Greek yogurt.
Ah, the gloriousness of delicious toppings! These are my favorite part and they totally take this chili up a notch. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
Crockpot Tip: You can make this recipe in the crockpot if you prefer. Brown your ground turkey and then add all the ingredients to a crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
Substitution Notes: You can substitute lean ground beef for the turkey. You can also substitute your favorite beans for the can of pinto beans.
