I’m posting this delicious chili recipe again as Jennie-O turkey coupons just became available today!  Enjoy!

Quick & Easy Healthy Turkey Chili

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: Serves 10-12

Serving Size: 1 medium-size bowl

Quick & Easy Healthy Turkey Chili

This delicious and healthy ground turkey chili recipe was adapted from "The Entertaining Survival Guide" by Lora Brody. I wasn't a ground turkey fan until I tried this recipe! It's one of those fabulous recipes that tastes better the second day, PLUS it freezes really well. The original recipe calls for fresh coriander leaves - which I never seem to be able to find at my local grocery store, but if you'd like to include it you can add about a 1/3 cup of coarsely chopped leaves along with the parsley. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 large green bell peppers (seeded & chopped into 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 large red bell peppers (seeded & chopped into 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 pounds ground turkey (Lean or Extra Lean)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (30-ounce) can hot chili beans (red beans in chili sauce)
  • 1 (30-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) can plain tomato sauce OR 1/2-cup mild or medium salsa
  • 2-3 tablespoons mild chili powder (add more for extra heat)
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2-cup fresh Italian parsley OR 2 tablespoons dried parsley

Microwave directions: Place the oil and all of the chopped vegetables in a large covered microwavable dish and set on high for 3-5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt.

Stovetop directions: Heat the oil in a large skillet for a few minutes and then add all of the chopped vegetables to the skillet. Cook the vegetables over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are slightly softened (about 10-12 minutes).

Then transfer the softened vegetables to a large stockpot.

Break the ground turkey into pieces and place either in the same dish or skillet used for the vegetables (do not wash first). Either microwave on high for 8-10 minutes, stopping halfway through to stir, or place in the hot skillet over medium heat and stir occasionally just until it loses its pink color.

Add the cooked turkey to the stockpot along with the remaining ingredients.

Cook uncovered over medium heat just until the chili starts to bubble.

Turn the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Optional toppings:

Plain yogurt (my fav) or sour cream

Grated cheddar cheese

Tabasco sauce

Optional sides:

Cornbread

Tortilla chips

Salad

My local DQ is closed for the winter which makes me super sad every time I pass it! Thankfully my favorite treat, a DQ Blizzard (Reese’s for me ;-)), is super easy to make at home and I’ve got the recipe for you!  Just make sure to add the milk slowly as it can get runny really quickly.

Homemade DQ Blizzard Recipe:

1/4 gallon (or 4 cups) vanilla ice cream
Around 10 Oreo Cookies (or your favorite cookies) or 1-2 candy bars (may freeze for a few minutes first)
1/2 to 3/4 cup milk

  • Blend ice cream in blender on medium-low speed for 10 seconds.
  • Add 1/2 cup of milk and blend on low for 15 seconds.
  • Add about half of the cookies/candy (cut up) and blend on medium for 20 seconds.
  • Add more milk as needed and blend.
  • Cut up other cookies/candy in chunks and stir in with wooden spoon.  Add a few to the top if desired.
  • Serves 2.
  • ENJOY!
