The first thing I make when cold weather rolls in is chili. It’s a staple fall food in our house because it is warm and comforting, perfect for when the temperature begins to drop.

One of my goals for this fall and winter is to really utilize my crock pot. For whatever reason, I didn’t pull out my slow cooker much these past two years; but every time that I do, I always tell Pat we need to do so more often! Slow cookers make life so simple. This crock pot turkey chili was the second time I used it this fall; and the other time, I made this!

The prep for this recipe is only 20 minutes long – which includes browning the turkey, chopping up a bell pepper and some sweet potatoes, and getting everything into the crock pot.

minimal effort + maximum flavor = a very happy Ellie

This minimal effort can be done before you head to work in the morning – you only need to wake up a little earlier than normal (or just not snooze your alarm 3 times) and you can come home after a long day to a wonderful smelling house and dinner ready to eat!

Ok, so the prep might take more than 20 minutes… you can bump that up to 30 minutes if you want to have cornbread with your chili. And who in the world doesn’t want cornbread with their chili?! My favorite corn bread mix is from Trader Joe’s – it’s seriously the best.

Recipe type: Soup, Main
Serves: 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1⅔ pounds ground turkey
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 small sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 14.5 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5 ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teapoon cayanne
  • 1 teaspoon smoked papricka
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 bottle of beer
  • 3 cups vegetable stock*
  • Toppings: plan Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, hot sauce
Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet, add the ground turkey, and cook until no longer pink. Add the onion, salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the turkey and onion mixture to the crock pot. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
Using 3 cups of stock in addition to the beer yielded a thinner and more brothy chili than I prefer. If you like a thicker and chunkier chili, use 1 cup of stock at the most.

Don’t forget the cornbread!

      Right?! The slow cooker is the best… and seriously, Trader Joe’s cornbread mix is better than anything else I’ve tried (even from scratch!).
