Sunday Recipe: Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Daylight savings time has brought more than just cold weather and shorter days. It has brought the desire for cuddles, hot cocoa, teas and fires in the fireplace. More importantly, it has heightened my craving for comfort food. My interpretation of comfort food at least. So, in honor of the new Sunday Recipe segment of the blog, we are making a cold weather classic:

Turkey Chili

Sunday’s are typically my lazy days. It is filled with movies, cuddles, cleaning and Sunday dinner. Being that I am now working on Sundays, I had to make dinner fit into my work schedule so I utilized the slow cooker in making my chili. However, this same Sunday Recipe could have easily been made on the stove. So cooking preference is truly YOUR choice.

I also substituted ground turkey for ground beef. I don’t really care for ground beef, and my intake of other forms of beef are limited, but again this is personal preference. Either way it goes, when I tell you that this was an easy, very tasty meal I am being modest.


Sunday Recipe:

Canned Ingredients:

1 – 29 oz can of Goya Black Beans
1 – 15.5 oz can of Goya Red Beans
2 – 14.5 oz cans of S&W Diced Tomatoes with Chiles & Spices
1 – 14.5 oz can of S&W Stewed Mexican Tomatoes

Fresh Ingredients:

1 – Tbsp of minced garlic
1 – Medium onion
1 – Medium Green Bell Pepper

Processed Ingredients:

1 – package of Mexican cheese blend (optional)
1 – 8oz Sour Cream


1 – 16oz package of Lean Ground Turkey


Cumin, Ground Oregano, Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder
1 – Tbsp of Olive Oil


The Breakdown:

1. Chop your veggies. Dice the onion and bell pepper. Set it aside

2. Empty all of your canned contents into the slow cooker along with your diced bell pepper.
(Do not drain beans, it will be used as a broth for the chili)

3. Turn your slow cooker on high for 3 hours.
4. Allow your medley to marry for approximately 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally.
5. Once the chili is halfway done, it’s time to cook your meat
6. Add Olive Oil to your skillet along with minced garlic and diced onion
7.) Sauté until lightly browned.
8.) Add ground turkey, seasonings and cook until browned
9.) Add all ingredients from skillet (including drippings) to slow cooker
10.) Stir and cook for 1 additional hour
11.) In the last 30 minutes of cooking time, stir in 3 Tbsp of sour cream
(thickening agent – you can use more or less to taste)
12.) Continue stirring occasionally until finished
Once you’ve completed the chili, you can either leave it in the slow cooker to warm or if it is dinner time, serve in a bowl.  I added cheese on top as a garnish and additional flavoring. However, this too is optional!

I also made a side of cornbread using Jiffy Cornbread mix. I mean, what is chili without some tasty cornbread?
