Your Must Have Turkey Chili Recipe
Sponsored by Foster Farms
It’s cold outside, yes, even here in San Diego, and that means I’m eating all the recipes that warm me up! Growing up one of my favorite winter dishes my mom made was chili. I still love it, it’s super simple, but I wanted to spice it up a bit by making it “California Style” if you will. Supes healthy, because we are health nuts over here. The first way to do that is to substitute Beef for Lean Turkey. Ground turkey is nutritious and a lean source of protein. Woohoo! I was excited to work with Foster Farms specifically because they are a local California Company. There turkey also has no antibiotics ever, is raised free-range on organic land and fed an organic vegetarian diet, and 100% natural with no added hormones or steroids. Talk about a win! If your anything like me, then you probably care about where your meat comes from. I love meat, for me, it makes my body feel good, especially as an athlete. I feel recovered and fueled for workouts better when I have meat, but I am very mindful of the quality of meat I get. Foster Farms definitely get the KHM approval.
Lean up with me with this Turkey Chili Recipe.
Makes 2-4 servings (just depends on how hungry you are :))
1/2 yellow onion diced
2-3 garlic cloves minced (I use a mincer, but you can also chop it)
1tsp olive oil (I like to use Trader Joe’s Olive Oil Spray)
1lb Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey
1 15oz can of black beans (or beans of your choice)
1 cup vegetable broth
2-3 cups butternut squash (can use frozen, just thaw first – I used Trader Joe’s, and I just use the whole thing. Can’t go wrong with too many veggies)
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1 avocado for topping
In a large pot heat olive oil, yellow onion, minced garlic – sauté for about 3min over medium heat.
Break up the turkey into small pieces and drop into the pot. Cook until all sides are brown – 10-15min.
Drain the beans, then add beans, butternut squash, vegetable broth, and all the spices. Raise to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 15-20min or until the squash is soft.
Serve in a bowl and top with Avocado (you can also top with green onion, if you’d like).
