Love and Turkey Chili

Well, winter is here! Time to make savory foods that will warm us up and this chili is the perfect dish to warm up to. 

Not to mention it is so filling and healthy.

Great comfort food and an easy way to add tons of veggies into your diet!

Steve just bought me a crockpot, which I have been wanting forever!

Years ago, I wrote my college application essay about how there was a time when I didn't know what a crockpot was. I related it to being raised in a Russian household, living between the Russian and American culture, and well, it all made sense at the time!

And here I am, (basically) done with my Master's and excited to finally own a crockpot! It all comes full circle. 

Anyway, I was looking up slow cooker recipes and came across Two Peas and Their Pod's Slow Cooker Turkey Chili. I ended up making this stove top and adapted the recipe as such, plus to include more veggies, but must give credit where credit is due because this chili is seriously so tasty!

I always wanted to try my own chili but thought I would have to buy all these different spices. All this one needs (other than salt and pepper) is chili powder and cumin. 

This can also be made vegetarian by excluding the ground turkey. It has plenty of other great ingredients to make this filling and delicious.

It is so flavorful, packed with tons of nutrients and only takes a little prep work.

Let's get cooking!
