Ground Turkey Chili

When it comes to ground turkey recipes, turkey chili is one of the easiest! We make this in the slow cooker, during the week, and come home to dinner in no time! We simply cut a lime, slice an avocado, and shred some cheese to top the chili with. This ground turkey recipe is such a great go to for a cool winter evening.
