Crockpot Turkey Chili

CHIEFS ❤️ made chili last night but it’s even better tonight. Today was absolutely the most perfect day; first really chili😏 day here in kc, paired with some turkey chili and chiefs football – it just doesn’t get better than that. 

This turkey chili has evolved over the years and each time I had a little something new – this time it was a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. I’m a fan of the chunky chili versus the soupy kind. So, here it is @littlehouseinop’s crockpot ground turkey chili 🥫


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1.5 lbs ground turkey 
  • salt
  • pepper

  • 1 (28oz) can chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 (15oz) can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 (15oz) can dark red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 3 cups of chicken broth (can add more for a more soupy chili)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
