Dear Creatives, Looking for an easy, leaner chili to have for your summer BBQ’s. It is easy to make ahead, reheat or just serve up the same day. The day I made it for the family I just made a small pot of rice & served the chili right over it. This isn’t a hot & spicy chili, it has a nice chili flavor & is perfect for anyone. As always I will share options to spice it up if you like yours a little spicier!
What I like about this recipe is it is what I call easy one pot meals! Use a non stick pot at least 3″ tall.
When you can serve it in one dish it makes clean up so easy! Sorry, not the greatest photos as they were taken late in evening, but had to share this because it is such an easy & good Turkey Chili! It can be easily substituted with beef or toss in other beans & use the basics to create it vegetarian. Trust me this will convert easy. The leftovers of this easy chili were gone the next day. Yummy!
