Crockpot Turkey Chili

Recipe Image: Crockpot Turkey 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.


  • 12-16 oz. cooked ground turkey breast* (or lean ground beef or buffalo)
  • 2-3 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)
