Healthy turkey chili -this easy recipe is hearty and delicious with plenty of flavor! Can easily be made in the slow cooker as well.

This simple turkey chili recipe is made with lean ground turkey, chili seasonings and 3 types of beans. It is perfect on a cold fall evening. We love to top it with all of our favorite toppings including : cheese, sour cream, avocado, cilantro and chips. It makes it a little less healthy, but oh so yummy. The thing I love about this soup is it’s even better the next day. I’m not a huge fan for leftovers, but this chili turkey I will definitely eat the next day! It is that good.
