Turkey Chili





2 pounds of ground turkey

1 medium onion chopped

2 carrots sliced

1 bell pepper chopped (I like red but you can use green if you like)

2 stalks of celery, chopped

Pinch of salt & pepper (if you like your chili hot add a pinch of pepper flakes)


In a large pot add a little oil brown off turkey add onions, carrots, bell pepper and celery sauté for about 5 more minutes.


Now add:

2 – 15 oz cans of stewed tomatoes

1 – 6 oz can of tomato paste

½ cup of bottle steak sauce

½ cup of catsup

½ cup of BBQ sauce

2 packages of chili seasoning mix

2 – 15 oz cans of kidney beans, drained (a good substitute is navy beans also and if you like a lot of beans add an extra can)

Water or Chicken broth to thin, guessing 2 cups (I like to make mine thick and serve it on a baked potato with cheese and sour cream.)


Simmer for 30 minutes or longer.


Optional Items:

1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro

1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley


Instead of turkey recipe variations:

Use ground beef

Stew beef that has been cooked overnight in a Crockpot (tender)

Vegetarian – use 5 cups of chopped zucchini. (Careful not to over cook)

  1. Paula, It looks so good that I may even try it! Love that you added the tip for veggie heads. I was thinking I could buy some of the tofu variety of meatless meat for this one.

  2. Can I get an order to go. What time do you open for lunch………Randall Ray

  3. OHHHH…thanks. I’m stuck in the snow and cooking giant chicken breast in the crock pot today. I’mma make this with the left overs. YUM…my fav.
