Crockpot Turkey Chili

Healthy Turkey Crockpot Chili

The most popular request we get in the MRC Kitchen is for quick and easy recipes that can be made ahead. With our hectic, on-the-go lives, make ahead meals are a real big time saver (and sanity saver!). Our Crockpot Chili is a client favorite because it can be made in advance, it's loaded with flavor, and highly versatile.

Our Crockpot Chili is customizable; feel free to make substitutions. For example you could use black beans instead of kidney, or try ground buffalo or lean ground beef instead of turkey. For those feeding a family or group offer a variety of toppings, this way each person in your family is able to dress their chili to their own liking.

If you prefer a make this on the stove, follow the directions below, and then simmer on the stove, on Low-Medium, for about an hour.


· 12 oz. cooked ground turkey breast (or lean ground beef or buffalo)
· 2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
· 20 oz. fresh tomatoes, chopped
· 6 oz. green onions, chopped
· 6 oz. green bell peppers, chopped
· 1 cups bean of choice (red, black, pinto, navy, etc.)
· 1 pkg. McCormick’s Low sodium chili seasoning
· ½ to 3/4 cup water (or low sodium chicken broth)

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!
