Need an easy, crowd-pleasing dish for game day?  

Make a batch of my Spicy Turkey Chili.  Ground turkey along with black beans and a few pantry staples is all you need to make a batch of the BEST TASTING, healthier version of chili.  This has become my new favorite chili dish and it is comfort food heaven on a cold day.

Spiked with cayenne pepper and jalapenos for heat you can amp it up to another level or mellow it out by adding more or reducing the amounts used.  We like a little spice so I put about 1/4 tsp instead of a pinch in our batch.  Bam!  it was soooo good!  

I love that this is a healthy version of chili, reducing the fat by using turkey.  I also love that this is a little soupier chili, it creates a soupy broth that is full of flavor.  If you like your chili super thick then I would reduce the liquid by a cup.  This is comfort food heaven (Did I tell you that already?).  Easy enough to throw together on a weeknight, and one your family and friends will love!
