Good Turkey Chili

I don’t know about you, but I’m a homebody. I love snuggling up on the couch, watching my favorite shows, and eating a good bowl of chili. I mean it’s nothing like a chill day with some comfort food.

Growing up chili was not my favorite dish because I hated those huge kidney beans. I love making dishes that I didn’t really care for growing up, because now I make them according to what I like..(kinda like this, minimal beans).

Anyway today my littles wanted chili, Braylen seems to love anything with ground turkey or beef (he’s my picky eater). So, here I am making chili and sharing the tea on how I make my chili with you. This was my first time actually measuring the ingredients out. When I learned to cook my Great Grandma always told me to make it according to my likings and it kinda stuck.

What you’ll need:

3lbs of ground turkey

1 Green pepper

1 Small onion

1 Jalapeño

Minced garlic

2 packs of McCormick chili seasoning (mild)

1 can crushed tomatoes (28oz)

1 can diced tomatoes (28oz)

1 Chili beans (16oz)

1 cup of water

2 Tbsp of olive oil


1/2 Tsp Pepper

1 1/2 Tbsp Seasoning salt or salt

1 Tsp Onion powder

1 Tsp Garlic powder

2 Tbsp Chili powder

1/2 Tsp Cayenne pepper

Pinch Ms. Dash extra spicy (optional depends on how spicy you like your chili)


Sour cream

Grated cheese (triple cheddar)

Green onions


  1. Turn stove on medium / high heat

  2. Dice bell pepper, onion, and jalapeño.

  3. Pour 2 Tbsp of olive oil in pan and sauté bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, and minced garlic.

  4. Place ground turkey in pan and season meat (season to your liking, I like my chili well seasoned). After you have seasoned meat allow time to brown. Be sure to break meat in to smaller pieces while cooking, using a spatula (I use a flat wooden spatula).

  5. Once meat is browned transfer into a pot.

  6. Turn stove down to medium/ low heat and pour diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, beans, and water into pot. Allow 20-30 mins to cook.

  7. Once chili is done use your favorite toppings to add flavor. I love sour cream and cheese.
