Healthy Tailgating--> Recipe #5 Very Veggie Turkey Chili

Sunday, September 30, 2012 • Phoenixville, PA 19460

Chili is a great meal that is packed with protein and fiber. I make mine even more nutrient dense by adding veggies, sticking to lower sodium products, and using ground turkey. This can be made on the stove top by simmering over medium heat for 30-45 minutes OR in the crockpot and let it cook over medium heat for 4-5 hours. Either way it taste delicious...I make mine on the stove when I need a quick meal and use the crockpot when I have a few hours to spare.
