One-Pot Turkey Chili
Who doesn't love chili for football season?! Turkey chili is a great way to warm up during a cool fall day without sacrificing fat content.
This turkey chili only uses one pot, minimal ingredrients, and filling foods. With all the fiber and protein-rich components, it's a nutritious dish! I made a turkey chili nacho version of this, (pictured below) using waffle sweet potato fries as my base, shredded cheddar cheese, and then the chili on top of that. It was SO delicious and made for an amazing, hearty meal. Add jalapenos for an extra kick!
