Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Chili is an amazing comfort food that CAN be packed full of nutrients. It's a great way to use up leftovers and often tastes better the second day.

Another highly adaptable recipe, I love adaptable recipes. I am NOT going to run out to the store for one item I don't have. I want a recipe that will accept a substitution, chili is great for that.


1 box organic tomato/roasted red pepper soup (this MADE the chili, use it)
1 can tomato with green chilies
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1 scallion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1-2 cups cooked turkey, chopped or use ground
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon fresh Thyme
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Optional - 1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper I'm not a fan of hot, but if you are that should do it :)

Optional for garnish:

sharp cheddar cheese, grated
avocado <- great source of healthy fats
sour cream


Saute mushrooms and onion in the oil until cooked well.

Mix spices with your soup in the slow cooker until well combined. Mix all ingredients in your slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Garnish and enjoy, this is SO GOOD! And so EASY.

Hey look... another fancy video :) I'm so cool.
