Easy Turkey Chili

This super easy turkey chili is on weekly rotation in my home from the beginning of fall until the end of winter. It’s so simple and perfectly seasoned for a hearty, healthy, busy mama meal. And the best part is – if you let the kids add their own toppings, it will easily become a family favorite.

This is one of the recipes that still brings my adult children home. Try pairing it with these yummy sweet corn fritters.

I hope they come home, drop a bag of laundry and gather around your table.
