Hillbilly Chili


  • 1-2 onions (diced)
  • 1-2 green peppers (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (diced)
  • 1lb ground turkey (browned)
  • 3 cans diced or stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cans chili beans
  • 1 packet of chili seasoning (hot or mild depending on your preference)
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • A good sprinkle each of garlic powder, white pepper, ancho chili pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1tsp each: oregano, basil, thyme (and any other herbs you like)

Put everything into the slow cooker on high for about 5-6hrs or low for 8-10hrs. Until the veggies are soft. Taste about halfway through and adjust the saltiness accordingly. Garnish with green onions, sour cream, and cheddar cheese.

***To spice it up a little more and for a little more depth of flavor, try using 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 hot italian sausage… Yum!

Also, this is super delicious served with Spicy Chili Bread!
