This healthy, hearty chili is packed with tasty spices, beans, ground turkey, onions, tomatoes, and corn!
Last week, my mom’s neighbor and friend Christi, text my mom about a dinner she had made. She included several pics and even the video snippet (shared on Facebook)! Since I love sharing new recipes, I took one look at the recipe my mom had forwarded and knew I had to post it quickly!
This healthy chili is perfect for the new year when everyone is trying to eat a bit healthier to reach their resolutions! Whether trying to eat cleaner, or lose weight, this is a great choice!
As I glanced over the recipe, I noticed it was packed with veggies, ground turkey, and seasonings which would make this a flavorful dinner choice! If you aren’t a huge fan of ground turkey, you can use ground chicken or even beef….although not as healthy of a choice.
I personally have not tried this, but I have already added it to my meal plan to make this week! There is nothing better than a good chili recipe served with some cornbread, right?!
With it being Football season (almost Super Bowl), this would be a great dish to serve on a Sunday with family/friends!
The leftovers freeze great, but of course….I don’t think you’ll have any once everyone tries this!
Thanks Christi for the recipe, I can’t wait to try it!
