Quick and Easy Turkey Chili

by Rhonda Wylie on September 30, 2012

Chili is notorious in the Southwest. With Fall finally here and cooler weather right around the corner, I started craving homemade chili. There are many ways to cook chili in Texas. Many people make an all day production out of preparing, cooking, and simmering their chili. Today, I was in the mood for something quick and easy, but also a bit more on the healthy side.  My solution was to use pre-packaged seasoning, and not my own, and to substitute turkey for ground beef or chili meat.

This turkey chili is so easy and is sure to warm any chili lover's heart.
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • ½ lg. onion - diced
  • 1 14½ oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
  • 1 pkg. chili seasoning mix (I prefer McCormick)
  • 1 16 oz. can pinto or kidney beans (optional)
  • 2 cups water
  1. Brown turkey in large skillet on medium high heat. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Put meat into a medium size pot.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients to pot and cook on Medium heat for about 15 minutes (making sure onions get cooked).
  4. Reduce to low heat and allow chili to simmer for at least another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
You can cook this chili in less time, but I like for it to simmer for a bit to enhance the flavor. If you like a little more salty taste, add Sea Salt to taste.
