Healthy Turkey Chili

Ok, honestly I am not the biggest cook. So, I tend to find recipes that include “simple” or “easy” and always “healthy” in the title.

Chili is a dish I love. It feels you up with protein and fiber and keeps well in your fridge. I have tried several different turkey chili recipes and found this one and it is my favorite! I can make a pot on Sunday and have several lunches or dinners for the week. In one cup serving it contains 39 grams of protein!  Try this recipe, you will not be disappointed!
