Healthy Turkey Chili Recipe

healthy beanless turkey chili

I just made this turkey chili recipe for dinner tonight and it was an absolute hit with my family!  The recipe was adapted from Jamie’s Chili.  I would have made it exactly as the recipe called for, but I only had ground turkey and the husband despises beans.  I also made my own chili seasoning.




1 pound ground turkey

2 tbsp olive or grapeseed oil

2 tsp. cumin

1 medium onion, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

2 cups celery, diced

4 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes

7 tsp chili seasoning


Chili Seasoning


4 tsp chili powder

2 tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

2 tsp white sugar

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp salt

1 tsp dried basil

1/4 tsp ground black pepper


Combine all the ingredients together and it’s ready to use.


In a large skillet, brown the turkey, drain, and set aside.  Add the onion, green pepper and celery to a 6 quart pot and sauté 5 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes and ground cumin.  Cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.  Add browned turkey and chili seasoning.  The original recipe said to cover and simmer for 4 hours, but since my husband was on the verge of starvation, I only simmered it for only 30 minutes and it was absolutely delicious!  Top with cheddar cheese and sour cream. Bon appetit!
