Turkey Chili

After Christmas we had so much leftover meat we decided to make turkey chili with the turkey! Turkey chili is absolutely delicious – and loaded with flavor! It’s super simple to make! I prefer mine a little spicy so I add jalapeno peppers and don’t remove the seeds. If you prefer a little less heat you can take the seeds out. Just be careful and wash hands thoroughly afterwards.

Here is my super easy recipe!!! It’s perfect for meal prep!!

INGREDIENTS – makes 8 servings 

  • 2 lb leftover shredded or chopped roasted turkey
  • 1 28 oz can diced organic tomatoes
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced and seeds KEPT! (Spicy)
  • 2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed (no salt)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (no salt)
  • 32 ounces organic, free range chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp (or more) SMOKED paprika (smoked is so much better than plain paprika!)
  • 1/4 tsp (or to your liking) red pepper flakes
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder – to taste


Take a large pot and heat either 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil over medium high heat. Add your onions and garlic and saute a few minutes.

Next, add all of your peppers and continue to saute another 5 minutes or so, before adding your seasonings.

Next, add your canned tomatoes, chicken stock, turkey, and beans and add additional water if needed. Bring to a boil and reduce and let simmer about 30 minutes on medium-low heat. Add additional salt and pepper here if needed.

Enjoy with fresh sliced avocado and cilantro!
