Seriously, The Best Healthy Turkey Chili

Healthy turkey chili made with lean ground turkey, kidney beans and corn. This version is simply the BEST! Can be made on the stovetop or in your slow cooker.

I normally don’t declare recipes the best for just any reason. In fact, if I’m saying something is the BEST, then it’s for a very good reason. Most often because I had multiple people try out a recipe and tell me it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted; this happens most frequently when I bake cookies.

Little did I expect this turkey chili to surprise me with it’s thick texture and addicting flavor. But my goodness, it is wonderful. And I do have to admit that I’ve made it four times in the past month. It’s one of those recipes you can tuck in your recipe box or bookmark on your phone. Honestly, I’m just obsessed.
