TURKEY CHILI for the whole family

I don’t make chili often enough, but every time I do I’m reminded that - this is really quick and easy to make, and it’s so tasty! I know there are a lot of chili recipes out there in the world, but in case you’re looking for a new one, or just a reminder of what a hearty winter meal chili is - here you go!

If you can find frozen and chopped peppers at your local grocery store, use those instead of a fresh pepper. They’re much cheaper and are great for chili. Also, look for organic canned tomatoes, in BPA-free lined cans. The acidity in the tomato can leach the BPA from the can. Enjoy!

Turkey Chili

Serves 6-8


  • 2 TBSP ghee

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 1 large pepper (any color), diced

  • 1-2 TBSP chilli powder

  • 1 TBSP cumin

  • 1 tsp. oregano

  • 1 lb organic ground turkey

  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed

  • 1 can pinto beans, drained & rinsed

  • 1 can kidney beans, drained & rinsed

  • 2, 14oz cans diced tomatoes

  • 2 TBSP tomato paste

  • Cilantro, chopped (optional)

  • Green onions/scallions, chopped (optional)

  • Cheddar cheese, (optional)

  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt ghee in a medium pot or dutch oven. Once melted, add diced onion and diced pepper, saute for 5-6 minutes.

  2. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, and saute for another minute.

  3. Add ground turkey, and saute until cooked, about 8-10 minutes.

  4. Add beans, tomatoes, and tomato paste. Cook for another 5-7 minutes. Your chili may seem dry at first, but as the chili cooks, the tomatoes will release more liquid. If you need extra liquid, add a cup of bone broth or water.

  5. Turn off heat. Serve with cilantro, green onion, and cheese if desired. Enjoy!


  • I use Eden Organic canned beans. The cans are BPA free and they cook the beans in kelp to make them easier to digest!

  • I use the Muir Glen organic diced canned tomatoes, available at most grocery stores.

  • This chili freezes well. Cook once, eat two, three or four times!
