Simple Turkey Chili Recipe

The weather here in Upper Michigan really cooled down this week putting the whole family in the mood for chili. When I mentioned turkey chili for some reason it really caught on, and I had no choice other than to put it on the menu for supper.

This Simple Turkey Chili Recipe, unlike a lot of other chili recipes, does not call for a lot of cooking time-within an hour you can have hot chili sitting in front of your family on the table. I prepared the recipe as written and thought the spices came together perfectly; but I don’t like a lot of heat. So if you want to turn up the heat a little bit, just increase the amount cayenne pepper. If you’re in the mood for chili and don’t have a lot of time to spend letting it cook give this Simple Turkey Chili Recipe a try. Enjoy
