Many years ago, my sister gave me one of the best presents ever: her easy recipe for turkey chili! This chili recipe is now a staple meal in our home. With a family of 7, it can get tricky sometimes to figure out what we will be having for dinner. This is an easy one-pan and crockpot recipe. I can start it right before the kids come home from school, put it in the crockpot, and come to a yummy dinner after sports practice! Its simplicity but tastefulness is why I love making this dinner recipe! The kids absolutely love it and are always sure to finish their dinner (plus leftovers!!!) when I make it! Here is all you need to make it:


  • 2 lbs of Ground Turkey or meat of your choice
  • Black Pepper, Chili Powder, and Salt
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Diced Onion
  • 1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
  • 2 Cans of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
  • 3 Cans of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Can of Beans
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 1/2 Bag of Corn (optional)
  • Rice (optional for serving)
  • Sour cream (for toppings)
  • Shredded cheese (for toppings)


Step 1: Heat up your skillet and toss in the ground meat, bell pepper, and onions. Season with black pepper, chili powder, and salt to taste!

Step 2: Now, it’s crockpot time! Transfer the meat mixture into the slow cooker, along with all the other ingredients, and give it a good stir.

Step 3: Set your crockpot to high and let the chili simmer on high for 4 hours. 

Step 4: Finally, serve the chili over rice. Don’t forget to top with sour cream and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Enjoy!
