Photo Description:

This is a very tasty turkey chili recipe and it makes a change from the beef kind. Color is added in the form of tomatoes, kidney beans, potatoes, and more, and you are free to mix and match the veggies. Consider swapping the potatoes for pumpkin or zucchini for a brand new twist on the chili flavor, or swap the kidney beans for chickpeas perhaps, or even the beef broth for a lighter broth, such as chicken. This recipe is great as it is or you can use it as a base and switch the ingredients around as you want. That is the great thing about chili con carne – you can make it your own.
