My dad makes chili like this but with ground beef and beef smoked sausage, I've always loved it that way, but decided to switch out beef for turkey to make it a little healthier!

This chili is good on its own in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese. If you have leftovers, try mixing in a little velveeta and serving it as a dip with tortilla chips.
