Turkey Chili

This Turkey Chili is one of my go-to chili recipes! So hearty and flavorful, it never disappoints! Grain-free, dairy-free and so simple to prepare!

Turkey Chili

Ahhh… comfort food. I think I could make this recipe with my eyes closed at this point!

It is always a huge hit and it’s one of my top rated recipes. Perfect for a big party, football Sunday, or for a good weekly meal prep (tons of leftovers).

The best part of the chili is you can customize to your liking, some days I’ll add more vegetables based on what’s in season!
