This healthy turkey chili first came to me from one of my Weight Watchers friends. If you follow Weight Watchers, you’ll be happy to know that this fantastic soup recipe is just ONE free-style point per serving! Heck yeah!! It’s basically made with all free-point foods. The only ingredients that have point value are the olive oil that the peppers and onions are sauteed in, and the seasoning mixes.

Here’s how this delicious, healthy and incredibly easy Turkey Chili recipe comes together:

Step 1: Gather your ingredients

For this healthy turkey chili recipe, you’ll first need to gather your ingredients.¬† I use canned corn, canned black and kidney beans, as well as canned petite diced tomatoes and Rotel. You’ll also need a 32 oz. carton of low-sodium chicken broth, which equates to approximately 4 cups of broth. If you make your own broth, feel free to use that instead.

Note on Seasoning Mixes: My recipe calls for pre-packaged chili seasoning and ranch seasoning. I know some of you prefer to not use seasoning mixes – that it definitely A-okay. If you’re trying to reduce sodium in your diet, there are several lower-sodium versions out there – feel free to substitute these as well. I use these as this was what was in the original recipe that was given to me years ago, and I always thought the flavor was spot-on, so I never changed it. You can also opt to substitute spices like chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper.

Step 2: Saute onions, peppers and ground turkey

Once you bring all of your ingredients together, chop up your peppers and onion. Saute these in the olive oil until the onions become translucent. Then, add the ground turkey, and brown until there is no more pink remaining.

Next, add the rest of the ingredients. Stir together and bring to a low boil over medium-high heat. Then, reduce the heat to med-low and simmer for 20 minutes! That’s it!! Super-simple, right!

Healthy Turkey Chili  РA great meal prep solution

This might be one of my favorite recipes for doing meal prep. On Sunday I like to make a couple recipes that I can divide up into meal prep containers (see the ones I like below) and freeze. I will often divide into jars – like the ones above, if I’m keeping these in the refrigerator for the week. These are great for pulling out for a quick, healthy lunch when time is limited. This prevents me from making unhealthy choices during the day.
