Spicy Turkey Chili

It was my first time making chili and Brady was pretty pleased. He can’t stop obsessing over it. I’m rather happy that he enjoys my cooking skills. He's the real cook around here. :)

Anyway, chili is perfect for the cool days that we should be getting, but it has been a warm fall. I’m not complaining.

wooden spoon for mixing
cutting board

1 pound ground turkey (but you can use any kind or do without)
1 tablespoon veggie oil
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
3 cups tomato soup (I bought mine from carton, cans are just as good)
2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans, drained
1 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 pinch black pepper
salt to taste

  • Turn crockpot to medium/high. Add tomato soup, kidney beans, black beans, chili powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, black pepper into crockpot and give it a good mix.
  • Mince garlic gloves, set aside. Slice onion and red bell pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place turkey in the skillet and cook until evenly brown, drain turkey. Place in crockpot and give it another good stir.
  • Cover and cook for 3 hours.

    You can top it off with sour cream, shredded cheese, and/or corn chips. Oh yeah, I also made corn bread because I’m kind of a pig like that.
