Sara's Turkey Chili

Most Sundays after church we go over to Sara & Matt's house for lunch. They live close to the church whereas we are about 30 min's away. Sometimes we bring the food, other times they cook. We used to go out to eat but you can probably imagine why we stopped that little tradition...4 kids ages 2 and under!

So anyway, one Sunday they made Turkey Chili. Sara cooks hers in the crockpot but I am usually not with it enough to do that so I end up making it in a hurry on the stovetop!

I've made a few changes to the recipe because I like a LOT of sauce in my chili, but first, here is Sara's original recipe:

Turkey Chili

2lbs of ground turkey meat, browned
1 can of tomato sauce
1 can of rotel with liquid
2 cans of black beans with liquid
1 package of Williams chili seasoning

Brown meat and cook everything together for as long as you desire!

Here are the changes I made:

1lb of turkey (I usually eat vegetarian chili but Chris likes the meat so we compromised)
1 can of kidney beans
2 cans of tomato sauce

So, if you like it chunkier and meatier, you'd want the original recipe but if you like a little more sauce, less meat and more beans, you can use my changes.

Either way, this is a GREAT and healthy chili recipe!

Thanks Sara for letting me share!
