Turkey Chili – Crock Pot

Crock Pot Recipe – for 3.5 to 6 quart slow cooker.

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 pounds ground turkey (normally we get 1.25 lb of the lean turkey)
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 and 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 2-3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 can (15 or 16 ounces) cannellini beans (white kidney beans)

Serve with:

  • Ditalini pasta
  • Shredded Mexican blend cheese

Directions:

  1. Cook turkey in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until brown.  Drain.
  2. Mix turkey and remaining ingredients except beans (and “serve with” items) in crock pot.
  3. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours (or high heat setting for 3 to 4 hours), or until onion is tender.
  4. Stir in beans.  Cover and cook on high heat setting for additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Serve over ditalini pasta with shredded cheese.
