Healthy slow cooker turkey chilli is a delicious lightly spiced and easy version of the Mexican classic recipe. This tasty dish is one all the family will love!
Folks this healthy slow cooker turkey chilli is one of the best meals for cold weather.
It’s also perfect when you’re busy and have got better things to do than spend time in the kitchen all day!
You just need 10 minutes to prepare the turkey mince then set your cooker on low and you’re good to go.
Cook the chilli for 6 to 8 hours. Stir it occasionally and enjoy the delicious aroma that fills your whole house and makes you feel incredibly hungry!
You can serve this turkey chilli in so many different ways. How might you serve yours?
Choose to keep it nice and simple by serving it on a bed of rice, like in this recipe?
Top it with a little sour cream and cheese?
The favourite way of Lady Lynne and myself? Take it to the next stage by filling tortillas with the cooked chilli. Place those filled tortillas in a baking dish, cover with cheese and bake them in the oven. Delicious!!
This tasty, fresh and healthy chilli is only 168 calories per portion (excluding rice) and serves 6 people in total.
Any leftover portions are freezable. Perfect for those nights where you can’t be bothered cooking.
Using lean turkey mince keeps the fat content as low as possible.
The recipe uses red kidney beans and black beans, both of which are a great source of protein. Using canned beans is cheaper and quicker than dried beans.
Vary the beans if you want to change the recipe up a bit, you’ve got beans leftover to use or if you can’t get the ones I’ve used!
