Easy Turkey Chili

Easy Turkey Chili

I'm going to keep this post simple, much like this recipe. I had a bite of this at my mom's house-she got the recipe from her friend Kathy-and thought it was delish. When my mom told me it was a cinch to make, I added it to my menu plan for the week. Simple meals are my friend these days!

Turkey Chili
This doesn't take long to make--once you brown the turkey, it's just a lot of dumping the ingredients into the pot and then letting it heat up. You could easily make this in the crockpot--just brown your meat, add it to the slow cooker with everything else and cook it on low or warm all day while you're out and about.

We loved this, and I can see it being a staple in our house this Winter!
