Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

This chili is so simple to make. It taste like you spent hours in the kitchen when in fact, the slow cooker did all the hard work.

I got this recipe from Allrecipes but used the modifications made by reviewers rather than using the recipe as it was written. Turns out, the reviewers were spot on.

I garnished the chili with chopped red bell pepper, shredded Mediterranean Gouda Cheese and a dollop of sour cream.


1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 pound ground turkey
2 cans tomatoes with green chiles
1 can (15 ounce) dark kidney beans, drained
1 can (15 ounce) light kidney beans, drained
1 can (15 ounce) black beans, drained
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes (omit if you want it kid friendly; I used them and it was fine for my girls)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch ground allspice
salt to taste

1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place turkey in the skillet, and cook until evenly brown; drain. Set aside. Then in the same skillet saute onions until translucent.
2. Coat the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray, and mix in turkey, tomatoes/chiles, beans and onion. Season with chili powder, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper, allspice and salt.
3. Cover, and cook 8 hours on Low or 4 hours on High.
