Turkey Chili



This is the perfect dish when it is cold outside. It warms up your whole body and makes your tummy very happy.

I made this dish on a Sunday, thinking I was just going to have dinner by myself. Right as the dish was done, I was greeted by some of my best friends from college: Alex, Kayleigh, and Joe.

The second they heard I was making chili- they ran over!


They reacted to the Chili just the way I wanted them to: wanting seconds!

Bon Appétit!

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Sour Cream


First brown the ground turkey meat by placing the meat in a frying pan and cooking it all the way through till it is a brownish/white (with no color of pink).


Drain the water from the pan (you can pat it down with a paper towel too). Place the ground turkey into The Crockpot.

Chop the yellow onions and green bell pepper.

Throw the chopped onions and peppers into The Crockpot.


Put in the cans of tomato and black beans.


Pour in the chicken stock.

Add the seasonings: chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Add the ketchup and sriracha.


Thoroughly stir it all up.


Turn on The Crockpot for 4 hours on low (you have already cooked the ground turkey all the way through, so the juices just need to marinate in the meat for a few hours to get that perfectly tender and delicious flavor).

After it is done cooking, let it cool. Serve with cheese and sour cream for a perfect touch.


Note: Everyone will have a different preference on how much sriracha to add. Since, the meat has been cooked all the through it is okay to taste test to see how much sriracha is necessary. I keep stirring it all up, and then adding the sriracha till perfection. You can add as much as you want, but you can’t take it out. So just keep adding little by little. If you over spice the dish, then just add ketchup to make the zesty flavors more mild. Personally, I think the ketchup and sriracha make the dish just perfect.
