Healthy Turkey Chili


I make this recipe once a week – usually on Monday. Not only is it a quick, easy, healthy, and delicious dinner, but it also gives me leftovers to enjoy all week long!

Feel free to play around with the ingredients – sometimes I’ll add some extras (jalapeno, corn, different amounts of the seasoning, etc) depending on what I’m in the mood for. It’s hard to mess this one up, so have fun with it & do whatever tastes right to you!
