This is a recipe that I made a few weekends ago for Angus and I to enjoy after an afternoon of cross country skiing. It’s the perfect chili recipe for a winter day. There’s nothing more satisfying than coming home from playing in the snow and having dinner all ready for you! Thank you, crockpot. I created this recipe by looking at a few online recipes and combining my favorite parts of each recipe. Now, I don’t like spicy things… so if you’re looking for a spicy chili, this is not it. Also, I think I’ve talked about smoked paprika before, but spend some $$ to get a good quality one. I thought it was getting a sweet deal when I found it at Trader Joes for $1.99. Well, you get what you pay for. Trader Joes does a lot of things very well but smoked paprika is not one of those things.
Crockpot Smokey Turkey Chili
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 cup red pepper
- 1 cup corn
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 28 oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 1 14 oz can of white beans (rinsed)
- 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup tomato sauce (check labels and find a high quality one without high sugar/sodium)
- 2 TBS smoked paprika
- 1/2 TBS cumin
- 1/2 TBS chili powder
- salt & pepper to taste
1. In a frying pan on medium heat, cook your ground turkey. I sprinkled some salt, pepper, and garlic powder on it once it was done.
2. Put cooked turkey, red pepper, onion, corn, diced tomatoes, and beans into the crockpot.
3. Cover ingredients with the tomato sauce and chicken broth. Add spices and stir to combine everything.
4. Cook in a crockpot on low for 6 hours.
