  • slow cooker


  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 Tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 small bell pepper diced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers seeded and diced
  • 1 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 14.5 oz can Great northern beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 4 oz can diced green chilies drained
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 0.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 0.5 tsp coriander


  • In a large saut√© pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper and jalapeno pepper, cooking for an additional 3 minutes. Add the ground turkey breast and cook until brown and no longer pink. Stir often to crumble.
  • Dump turkey mixture into the slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients and set the slow cooker to cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours. Add more liquid if needed to get your desired consistency. For a spicier chili, add some cayenne pepper or more jalapeno peppers.
  • Serve and enjoy! Garnish chili with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese if preferred.
