Leftover Turkey Chili

Whenever turkeys are on sale a usually buy a few. Publix had a decent sale and so did Winn-Dixie. I usually pay less per pound at Walbaums but it's nice to have gas perks from Winn-Dixie.

You could use a leftover chicken roaster. I save parts from the turkey that Gabe and I don't eat, legs and wings.

This recipe is from crockpot

  • 2 cups of shredded, cooked turkey meat
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped fine
  • 1 chopped red bell pepper
  • 32 oz canned stewed, crushed tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can pinto beans, drained
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chicken or turkey stock
  • 1-2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of sugar
    1. Add everything to the crock pot.
    2. Cover and Cook on high for 6 hours, serve with a spoonful of sour cream, tortilla chips or over rice.
    We like our chili with extra zing so added Tony Chachere's. I picked up Hot Slap ya Mama also. Combine those two and it's plenty of extra zing.


    1. I did check out that Slap ya Mama....going to check and see if they carry it around here.

    2. This chili sounds so delicious! I especially like the fact that it can be cooked in the crock pot.

      P.S. I wish we had gas perks around here! ~Aurora
