A sweet little twist on the classic turkey chili... A sweet little twist on the classic turkey chili...
Number of Servings: 5


    1 Package - 99% Fat Free Ground Turkey (I use Shday Brook Farms, which only comes in 1.23 lb, or about 3 lb pacakges. I use the 1.23 lb package for this recipe)
    1 can - Kidney beans (do not drain liquid)
    12 oz. - Any tomato sauce (homemade or jar)
    1/2 jar - Old El Paso Fresh Mexican Style Smooth Pineapple Chile Salsa
    5 oz. - Crushed Pineapple (I use Dole crushed pineapple in juice)
    Chili Powder (as much or as little as suits your taste)


- Brown the turkey over medium heat until no longer pink.
- Drain any excess fat.
- Combine all ingredients in a crock pot.
- Cook on high for 2.5 hours.
- Top with low fat sharp cheddar or fat free sour cream, if it suits you.

Tip: This dish tends to have a little kick to it due to the Pineapple Chile Salsa, so if you prefer something a little less spicy, I recommend skipping the extra chili powder.

Makes approximately 5-6 servings.

    This sounds really interesting. I've never before used pineapple in my Chili. I read recently that you should always drain and rinse your canned beans & vegetables before using to lower sodium content. I used to always drain but not rinse--I now rinse them, too. - 4/27/10

    I just made this today and wow it was great and I cant believe how simple it is to make. Only thing I did different was that I could not find the salsa that it called for so I use Newman's Own Medium Pineapple salsa. It tasted amazing and I would recommend this to all my family and friends. - 4/19/13

    Incredible!!!! I am always looking for Chili alternatives as I live on soups in the winter. This was so yummy. I low carb and I am a gastric bypass patient this receipe was perfect just a few months out of surgery. Will be making it over and over. - 10/16/12

  • Calories listed aren't correct. Kidney beans aren't added to the nutritional breakdown- I got 250 cal/ serving. Couldn't find the salsa so found grilled pineapple chipotle salsa (Meijer). Added 1 c onion, garlic, fire roasted tomatoes, drained beans and rinsed. Was really thick. Nice combo of flav! - 7/24/12
