Easy Turkey Chili


No more excuses! This recipe will guide you to make a deliciously healthy family meal that cooks itself while you play with the kids.

Select an organic ground turkey for best results.


Makes 12 servings of 1.5 Cups each


  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil (or grapeseed oil)

  • 1 large onion, chopped in chunks

  • 6 stalks celery, chopped in chunks

  • 2 medium coloured peppers, chopped in chunks

  • 3 Cups diced tomatoes (fresh or canned: if canned, unseasoned & unsalted)

  • 3 cans (size irrelevant) of various beans (red kidney, pinto, black eyed, or mixed combo) drained, rinsed thoroughly to wash off foam (which cause gas & bloating) 

  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder (depending upon desired heat) or chili flakes

  • 1 lb. raw organic ground turkey, leftover turkey chunks (or alternative vegetarian tofu, crumbled).

  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin (helps eliminate gas & bloating caused by beans)

Sauté turkey in a large pan over medium-high heat, until cooked through & no longer pink. Drain excess fat and set aside.


Heat large pot, add oil and sauté onions for 3-5 minutes over medium-high heat, then add peppers, celery, and sauté for another 3-5 minutes. Add tomatoes, drained beans, chili & cumin powders and turkey, and simmer on low for 1 hour, mixing occasionally.


This meal is also excellent for freezing for later meals or sharing with friends.
