Chili Recipe

I have been asked for years for my chili recipe. Until now I have not measured anything and gave approximates for everything… That has changed. And now I actually have a blog post about it.


  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans tomatoes sauce
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 2 TBSP garlic
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 TBSP garlic powder
  • 1 TBSP onion Powder
  • 2 TBSP chili powder
  • 2 TBSP cumin
  • Garlic salt and pepper to taste
  • Top with Cheese, sour cream, avocado
  • Serve with Corn chips, tortilla chips, or corn bread

Brown the ground turkey with a little salt and pepper. While the turkey is cooking, rise all the cans of beans, and chop the green bell pepper and onion. Once the turkey is ready add to the crock-pot along with the rest of the ingredients and seasonings. Cook on low for 8-6 hour or you can cook on high for 4-6 hours. Top with cheese, and sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips, corn chips, or corn bread.

*I use low sodium beans, I do not have fresh onion, and I have 4 cans of diced tomatoes. Hypertension runs in my family, so I try to get low to no sodium when I can. We buy bulk diced tomatoes from Costco. Kirkland brand diced tomatoes have less sodium than the tomato sauce, so I use an immersion blender to make my own tomato sauce. This house rarely eats raw onion… so I put it in the recipe but I rarely use it when I make it.
