  • Large chef's knife
  • Cutting board
  • Large pot
  • Spatula
  • 6 Quart Crock-Pot


  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 Large Yellow onion diced
  • 5 Cloves garlic diced
  • 1 Jalapeño pepper diced
  • 1 Roma tomato diced
  • 1 Lb Lean ground turkey
  • 4 Tbsp Chili powder
  • 2 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Fine sea salt
  • 1 14.5 oz Can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 Cups Chicken broth
  • 1 15 oz Can Kidney beans
  • 1 15 oz Can Black beans


  • Spray a slow-cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Dice all of the vegetables.
  • Place oil in a large pot and place over medium-high heat. Add in the onion, garlic, jalapeño, and tomato, and saute for 5-7 minutes. Stir frequently.
  • Add in ground turkey and garlic, break up the meat, and cook until no longer pink. Add in chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt; stir until the ingredients are combined.
  • Transfer the meat and vegetable mixture to a prepared slow-cooker.
  • To the slow-cooker add in the canned tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans, and black beans. Stir everything until the ingredients are combined.
  • Place a cover on the slow-cooker and cook on low-heat for 6 hours, or medium-heat for 4 hours.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings. Cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, etc.


  • If you prefer to cook this recipe on the stovetop, you can continue the process in the large pot instead of adding it to the crock-pot. Cook the chili on low for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • The beans can be swapped out for other types depending on your preference.
  • You can use any brand of a slow cooker, but I recommend a Crock-Pot.
