Great with chips, easy to make. Just pop everything into the slow-cooker and walk away! Great with chips, easy to make. Just pop everything into the slow-cooker and walk away!
Number of Servings: 12


    1 pound ground turkey or chicken (or Smart Ground)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 jalapeno peppers seeds removed, diced
    1 orange or yellow pepper
    1 red pepper
    1 large onion
    1 can black beans
    1 can kidney beans
    1 can tomato sauce
    1 can diced tomatoes or 2 cups fresh tomatoes with seeds removed
    1 tbsp canola oil, dash of chili oil for flavor if desired
    6 tbsp chili powder, adjust to taste


If you're using Smart Ground you can skip the saute step and just add it straight into the crock pot, broken up. I have found it tends to stick to my saucepan and doesn't brown nicely like poultry will. I've used original and Mexican and both taste good.


Saute 1 pound ground turkey or chicken with 1 tbsp of oil. Add onions and garlic until oils release from garlic. Place in crock pot/slow cooker. Add all of the remaining ingredients, with vegetables in large chunks. Slow cook for 6 hours on low. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Serving Size: Makes about 12 medium bowls (about 1.5 cups each)

Number of Servings: 12
