My Go To Turkey Chili Recipe

I know spring is rolling in but I still love to keep a few comfort food meals in rotation for those chillier transition days. This turkey chili recipe is one of my staples and perfect for slightly crisp spring evenings with a glass of wine and blanket on the back porch.




Al fresco dining is one of the many things I love about the change in season and arrival of spring – -brighter evenings, patio dining and evening walks. Throw in a bowl of this chili and it sounds like a pretty perfect spring evening to me.




Leave out the turkey and add some lentils or another type of bean for a delicious vegan chili. Garnish with cilantro and extra jalapeño slices and serve with corn chips.
