Light Crock Pot Spicy Turkey Chili ~ Delicious Light Chili Recipe with a Kick! Only Six Ingredients to a Healthy Dinner Recipe!
How’s that New Years resolution to eat healthier going? Good? Bad? Challenging? All of the above? I’ve been trying to focus on “healthier” recipes for my family this past year and I’ve been sneaking some of them in on the blog and I bet you haven’t even noticed!
Some of our favorites are the Chicken Avocado Burger, Ham & Cheese Egg Muffins, Famous Crockpot Chili Recipe and Stuffed Lasagna Spaghetti Squash. You guys. The fact that my husband eats spaghetti squash and actually likes it still amazes me.
He was a total meat and potato boy, but he’s totally broadened his horizons and I love it!
Sure, I still make the occasional casserole and we indulge in treats, but I truly try to live the 80/20 rule. I’ll be honest. Weight is a constant struggle with me. I was overweight all the way through school and finally got it under control when I was a junior in high school.
Every day since then I have had to make a conscious decision to make better choices or I’d be right back there. This involves portion control, making smarter eating decisions and working out 5 days a week.
Currently, I’m obsessed with Daily Burn 365 which allows me to workout in my basement and every day there is a new workout plan! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I have a confession to make. I actually made this recipe for the first time last January and I held on to it until now. Ooops!
I figured this was the perfect recipe to share while your New Years resolutions where still in the forefront of your mind. It takes a chili, a total comfort food, and lightens it up so you can still enjoy it and stay true to your resolution.
Eating healthy does not have to be boring and taste like cardboard you guys! This chili tastes nothing like cardboard trust me. It has a kick with it so be prepared for that! If you like chili that’s a bit spicy you are going to love this.
