Recipe: Turkey Chili

I have tried a lot of turkey chili dishes in my day but this one is the perfect amount of vegetables and chili with that strong heartiness and spice to it that doesn’t just make it taste like tomato sauce or a sloppy joe. This recipe isn’t soupy or brothy but instead mostly made of ground turkey and beans which leaves you feeling full after.
