Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

by Coach Courtney, RD

While chili is a staple dish in the winter, I enjoy it year round because it comes together so quickly in the slow cooker! Preparing chili in the slow cooker is a great way to save on time but is also helpful on those hot summer days when you don't want to turn on the oven.

Packed with veggies and lean protein, this hearty turkey chili is the perfect addition to your week day or weekend meal prep! Cinnamon is a secret ingredient that adds a subtle sweetness that balances the heat in this fibre packed recipe. Top your chili with nutritious add-ons like green onions, nutritional yeast, a sprinkle of cheese, or sour cream. Add this recipe to your meal prep roster as it yields enough for leftovers to reheat throughout the week!

My favorite way to top chili is to add plain Greek yogurt which replaces sour cream and balances the spice in the recipe. Greek yogurt is rich and creamy with a great tangy flavor. Plus it's low in calories, high in protein, and a source of calcium.
