Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

slow cooker turkey chili

This slow cooker turkey chili is easy to make and customizable to your carb preferences. I make it low-carb, meaning I double the amount of meat and add only one can of beans. You can make it keto by just leaving the beans out all together. Or, if you love a hearty chili with beans, simply add a can or two more. It’s up to you! The turkey, vegetables, and spices simmer all day in the slow cooker so no matter how you like it, it’s delicious!
