As you might’ve seen on my turkey burger recipe, I love trying new turkey meals. It’s great to have a leaner, low-calorie alternative to beef, but the best part is that it tastes just as good. If you love chili with beef, stay with me! This turkey is cooked and then placed in the slow cooker, so it has plenty of time to soak up those veggies and spices. No shortage of flavors, I promise.
