Touchdown Turkey Chili

turkey chili


I love sundays in the fall. While you’ll rarely find me watching football, you might find me “pretending” to watch football (ie. girl talk with friends over a good meal). As the temps continue to drop and the sweatshirts come out, nothing is cozier than sharing a warm bowl of hearty chili with friends.

I’m pretty much the girl that everyone begs not to talk during the game, but always the girl who gets invited to the Super Bowl party and asked to bring something “healthy but delicious”. This definitely meets both criteria!

Top with 1/4 cup of fat free shredded cheddar cheese, Salsa, Light Sour Cream or a tbsp of Guacamole!
