Healthy Turkey Chili Crock Pot Recipe + Video
Nothing screams comfort like a nice, warm bowl of chili!
Nom nom nom, I love chili! You know who else loves chili? My husband and toddler. That means I had to come up with a healthy turkey chili crock pot recipe because none of us were going to give it up.
I use this recipe on two occasions:
- When any of us are craving chili
- When I need something quick and easy to make because I’m not going to have time to cook
It really is as simple as throwing a bunch of ingredients that you probably already have at home in a crockpot and not looking at it again for 6-8 hours.
My husband says it tastes just like Wendy’s chili. He honestly has no idea that it’s healthy, and I have no plans on telling him!
Freezing Your Healthy Chili
Another great thing about this recipe as that it’s freezable! When frozen, it can last you another 4-6 months!
Perfect for those days you don’t want to cook and a million times better than a sodium/carb packed lean cuisine.
To freeze it (or to freeze any other food for that matter) I totally recommend these freezer storage bag holders. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
You just clip your freezer bags to it and it holds them open for a super easy transfer of your food from the crockpot to the baggy. Then you just close the baggy up and throw it in the freezer for a few months!
