Do you have some turkey left over from Thanksgiving that you don’t know what to do with? Have an extra turkey in the freezer that you didn’t cook? Here is a great way to use up that extra turkey, as you can cook up a big pot and freeze individual size portions to last you a few weeks.


Easy lunch or dinner idea for the busiest of busy people! No excuses for not eating healthy if you prepare in advance!

Now let’s get to the good stuff


Turkey Chili Recipe:


tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oilallergy-free-cheap-chili

garlic cloves, chopped

small onion, chopped

lb lean ground turkey

small red bell pepper, chopped

small green bell pepper, chopped

(15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

(28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

tablespoons chili powder

teaspoon ground pepper

teaspoon salt

teaspoon cumin

teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

teaspoon garlic powder

cup packed light brown sugar (optional)

Optional add in: chopped mushrooms, can swap lean ground beef for turkey if you want, any other veggies you can fit in there!

Ps. if you want to add extra kick! I like to add a scoop of non-fat greek yogurt on top with some slices of avocado :)


Here’s How It’s Done:

1. Add olive oil to bottom of a large cooking pot and turn heat on medium-low.
2. Add garlic to pot and cook until it starts to brown, stirring frequently (about 2 minutes).
3. Add onions and cook on medium-low until golden and translucent (about 5 minutes).
4. Add ground turkey and cook, stirring frequently, until cooked through.
5. Combine seasonings in a small bowl, then pour over cooked turkey meat in pot, and stir.
6. Pour in 2 cans of crushed tomatoes (be careful, it will splash slightly).
7. Stir in light brown sugar, kidney beans, and chopped peppers.
8. Simmer on medium-low heat for 30 minutes with cover on, slightly vented to allow steam to escape.
