This 3 Bean Turkey Chili is a really simple, one pot meal that just bursts with flavor. Second to that, it’s nutritious. It contains beans, ground turkey, and vegetables, making it packed full of protein and fiber. To add to that, it’s gluten free and can be dairy free if you choose to omit the sour cream and shredded cheese garnishments. You even have the option of cooking it on the stovetop last minute, or letting it simmer in the slow cooker all day. Either way, leftovers won’t exist. This recipe is similar to my Easy Chicken Chili, with only a few simple variations. Enjoy!
