When I worked full time in the city, on those occasions I don’t bring leftovers for lunch at work, I always bought the Turkey Chili Soup from Fresh and Co. This homemade version is just as good, and so much cheaper than buying it! Light, healthy and super filling!

Now I know I have quite a few chili recipes on my site, but this one is perfect when you need a quick meal. Adapted from my friend Julia’s recipe, of Julia’s Healthy Italian Cooking. She’s an amazing cook, a working mother of four, and always cooks her family quick healthy meals made from scratch.

When reheating, to thin it out simply add more broth or water.
