Turkey and Vegetable Chili for the Whole Family

I've been cooking up lots of comfort food since it's been so cold lately. This is one of those meals that will warm you up from the inside out on a cold fall or winter night. This chili is full of flavor and healthy, yummy goodness for the whole family. Not to mention it takes about 20 minutes from start to finish! This is for little ones 10+ months who are ready for finger food and Mommies and Daddies of all ages.

Here's what you need for 4 to 6 servings:
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 15 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 14 1/2 oz can organic diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can organic tomato sauce
1 can corn, drained
1 1/2 cup chopped organic baby spinach
1 garlic clove minced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
1 tbsp onion powder
Olive oil
Shredded cheddar cheese
Non-fat plain greek yogurt

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a large deep skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add ground turkey and cook until browned (about 5 minutes). Add kidney beans, diced tomatoes, corn, chopped spinach, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, Italian seasoning, onion powder and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring chili to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook for 5 more minutes. Let cool, and then serve in bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese, and a dollop of plain greek yogurt. I also served corn bread on the side. Test your little one's portion on your lower lip to make sure it is not too hot. Enjoy!


  1. I added some smoked sausages to chili the other day. Tastes good.

  2. I literally just made this while watching football. I just did the taste test and was in love with it. I will let the flavors settle over night and have for dinner tomorrow topped off with sour cream and tortilla chips but this is an awesome recipe. I added some onion powder, oregano, garlic powder and extra chili powder as well as two tablespoons sugar to cut the tomato sauce. Thanks for sharing.
