Healthy Turkey Chili


My fiance & 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 us leftovers to take for lunch for about half of the week! We have yet to get sick of it and I hope you’ll love it as much as we do!

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

If you try it, please share your thoughts in the comments section!
