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!
