Simple Turkey Chili Crock-Pot Recipe

I cooked up a storm this weekend and have two new recipes to share with you this week!  I made the recipe I’ll be sharing with you today on Saturday afternoon while I was cleaning up a storm in my apartment.  I love recipes that only require prep and clean up and crock-pot recipes are perfect for a cool Fall day.  Chili in the crock-pot was always a staple in my home growing up during the cold Fall and Winter months that living in Michigan brings. I hope you enjoy!

Turkey Chili Crock-Pot Recipe:



1 lb ground turkey

1 can of kidney beans (no salt added, organic) – drained and rinsed

1 can of great Northern beans (no salt added, organic) – drained and rinsed

1/2 red pepper, chopped

1/2 green pepper, chopped

1 onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

16 oz of vegetable or chicken stock

2 TBSP tomato paste

1 can diced or crushed tomatoes (no salt added), undrained

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Add ground turkey, onion, peppers and garlic to crock-pot set on high and cook while measuring out the spices and draining/rinsing beans.


Mix crock-pot ingredients then add in undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, kidney beans, great northern beans, and vegetable or chicken stock.  Give the ingredients a thorough mixing then add in the spices/seasoning: cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.


Set the temperature to low and cook for about 4 and a half hours.  Feel free to set the temperature to high and cook for about half the time, if you’d like.

Serve and Enjoy!
