Believe it or not you can make a healthy Turkey Chili in under 35 minutes for a delicious weeknight meal.
Normally when I think about chili I think of a slow weekend meal where the chili simmers on the stove or in the slow cooker all day, but in real life sometimes a girl is craving chili and needs a quicker solution. Enter this dreamy Turkey Chili. The whole thing is ready in about 30 minutes but you would never know it from the deep flavor. It tastes like a chili that spent all day on the stove. They key to getting a nice deep flavor is starting out by sauteing all the veggies to bring out and deepen their flavor. Then the turkey and spice are added. Adding the spices early helps deepen thier flavor as well. Finally the tomatoes, broth, and beans are added to create a thick, rich chili.
In terms of making this recipe your own, you can personalize it in all sorts of ways. My personal favorite is through the toppings - I am a toppings person. I pile on the cheese, avocado, cilantro, some baked tortillas chips, a dollop of Greek yogurt, and tons of fresh lime juice. But you could also switch up the beans - using black beans, cannelini beans, or even chickpeas. You could also add some diced sweet potato or butternut squash to add some sweetness to the dish. Lastly, and perhaps the most unexpected twist, you could add some cinnamon to the spices. It adds a delicious, surprising flavor to the chili, that I personally love.
