Turkey Chili

About This Recipe:

Turkey chili isn’t the fanciest or prettiest soup on the block, but it has a lot of personality. This is a great dish to make for dinner on a cold, winter night, and leftovers freeze well to have on hand for whenever you’re in a bind. I keep the recipe super minimal- just the classic turkey chili ingredients, but with a lot of spices for a little kick and great flavor. And of course, fun toppings are a must!
