Paleo Turkey Chili

guess who is back another crockpot creation?! are you surprised?!

Chili is one of my favorites, but beans don’t always agree with me. I was hesitant to attemp chili without the beans because I feel like beans are the key to chili, but I was pleasantly surprised with how DELICIOUS it came out! Obviously the crockpot is not necessary, but I love simple ways of cooking and I don’t like feeling chained to the stove.

ingredients

  • 1 1/2-2 lbs ground turkey

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, choppes

  • 1 large onion (I use red but whatever floats your boat!)

  • chopped celery, as much as you prefer

  • choppped carrots, as much as your prefer

  • 2-3 zucchini, chopped

  • 1 eggplant, chopped

  • chopped peppers, as much as you prefer

  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce/paste

  • 2 15-ounce cans fire roasted diced tomatoes

  • chili powder, to taste

  • cumin, to taste

  • oregano, to taste

  • salt, to taste

  • water/broth - as much needed for desired thickness

Brown meat in oil and seasonings of your choice before adding to the crockpot. Add all chopped veggies and other ingredients to the crockpot and cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Top with cheese if you want, and enjoy! This also freezes REALLY well and tends to make a lot, so make sure to have some extra tupperware on hand!
