Turkey And Black Bean Chilli Recipe

Turkey And Black Bean Chilli Recipe

I came up with this recipe around Thanksgiving and have made it over a dozen times since. It is a hearty dish, full of vegetables and spices and the smell fills the apartment as it cooks all day. Once you have this recipe down, I suggest keeping extra ingredients in your pantry to make it again. It is a perfect back up to have in your stash on chilly days (pun intended).

What you’ll need:

2 pounds of lean ground Turkey
1 cup of chopped onion
1 cup of chopped mixed peppers (pick your favorites!)
2 14 ounce. cans diced tomatoes (I use a low sodium brand flavored with garlic, oregano and basil).
1 14 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 14 ounce can of black beans
2 teaspoon of Olive oil
2 tablespoon of Adobo
2 tablespoon of chili powder
2 tablespoon of curry powder
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of paprika


  1. Chop your onion and mixed peppers and set them aside.
  2. Prep the ground meat by cooking it in a large skillet with olive oil and adobo, constantly chopping it with a spatula so that the mean is cooked evenly and looks crumbled when cooked.
  3. Mix in the chopped onion and peppers once the meat is fully done, cooking in the flavor for 10-15 mins on low. Then place it into your Crockpot.
  4. Combine all of the remaining ingredients with the meat, onion and peppers
  5. Stir several times before setting the timer on your Crockpot
  6. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or Cook on high for 4 hours

Add ons: shredded cheese, low fat sour cream
