The Biggest Loser Crock Pot Turkey Chili Recipe
2 lbs ground turkey, extra lean or 1.5 lb leftover cooked turkey, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 large onions, diced
4 large celery stalks, chopped
3 large bell peppers, chopped
14 oz can red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
14 oz can any white beans, drained & rinsed
28 oz can tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
2 cups water or low sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced or to taste
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp taco seasoning, all natural
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Preheat large skillet on high and add ground turkey. Cook until brown, stirring and breaking into small pieces with spatula, occasionally. Transfer to a large slow cooker. If using leftover cooked turkey, skip the browning step.
Return skillet to medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add garlic, onion, celery, bell peppers and saute for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a slow cooker.
Add remaining ingredients to slow cooker, cover and cook 8 hours on Low or 4 hours on High. Reduce cooking time to 5 hours on Low and 3 hours on High, if using cooked turkey. Serve hot.
