Crock Pot 3 Bean Turkey Chili

Another great chili recipe, this one uses turkey and a whole lotta beans.

I loved this easy recipe topped with a little low fat cheddar, chopped red onion and cilantro. My brother gave me his recipe and insisted I use it for my blog. I am always looking for new, great tasting recipes, so I made this and he was right, it was a winner and even better the next day. Prepare this the night before and turn it on in the morning. Have a great meal when you get home. This can easily be made vegan by eliminating the turkey.

And since so many are asking, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This crock pot is so great, I actually own two!
