Recipe: Turkey Chili

I have something to share with you.

It’s starting to finally cool off in Texas and I thought I would celebrate by cooking a fall favorite – turkey chili!  My daughter had made it at cooking class at camp and I figured she would love it(plus it would be a super quick dinner).  It took 30 minutes to make and then I let it simmer till we were ready to eat.  Not only did we have a great dinner, but there was plenty to freeze for a night I am out of town.

  • 2 packages ground turkey  (I use Jennie-O)
  • 2 cans(15.5 oz) Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 large cans(28 oz) diced tomatoes(do not drain)
  • 1 can(6 oz) tomato paste
  • 2 packets of chili seasoning(choose your heat)
  • One small onion, diced small
  • Half of a green pepper, chopped fine


  • Cook the onions in oil until translucent.  Add peppers and cook through.
  • Add the ground turkey and cook through.
  • Remove extra oil(I use slices of bread) and add seasoning packets, kidney beans and tomatoes.
  • Let it simmer for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Serve with chopped onions, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and Fritos!
