One of my favorite comfort foods is chili. There’s nothing like having a big bowl of hearty chili on a cold evening. It tastes even better the next morning for breakfast! I’ve come to love just adding whatever ingredients I feel would make it tastes delicious, so this isn’t really a traditional recipe for chili. It’s so incredibly filling and I love the spices that lingers in the back of my throat after each bite.



2lbs ground turkey
1 yellow onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
2 (15oz) canned crushed tomatoes
1 (15oz) chili beans
2 yellow, red, or orange bell peppers
3 T tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp sugar, or one packet stevia/truvia
3 T chili powder
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp paprika or cayenne pepper
green onions to garnish
other veggies: kale, spinach, etc.
optional: 1 T cornstarch/flour

  1. Saute oil with onion and garlic until slightly browned and onions turn opaque. Add ground turkey and cooked until crumbled and browned.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium heat for ~30 min.
  3. If you like your chili more thick and less liquid-y, you can mix in cornstarch or flour.
  4. Taste your chili and add more seasoning to your liking.
  5. Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
