I’m obsessed with Fall and Winter and all the comfort food that the cooler weather brings to the table. What I don’t like is so many of those recipes aren’t so great for the waistline. So many cold weather foods are filled with carbs, cheese (you guys know I can’t say no to cheese!), and all the things that may taste amazing but aren’t the healthiest.

I’m all about balance…I will indulge on the indulgent from time to time, but I also like to find recipes that taste amazing, are comforting, but also have little tweaks to make them lighter. This HEALTHY SOUTHWEST TURKEY CHILI is oh so flavorful, OH so easy, and BONUS…healthy(er). Are you as excited as I am?

This Southwest Turkey Chili might be lightened up, but its not light on flavor. It’s just the right amount of spicy and I just know you’ll love it. As you all know, I’m a HUGE fan of Old El Paso and will shout it from the rooftops any chance I can. I used their Low Sodium Taco Seasoning as well as their Chopped Green Chiles (MY FAVORITE) and I think they make all the difference. Save time, money, and bulk up on flavor with Old El Paso. Obsessed.

I’ve loaded this Southwest Turkey Chili with black and pinto beans, corn, turkey, green peppers, green chiles, diced tomatoes, and onion. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. You’re gonna love it. We love to top it with greek yogurt (you’ll never miss the sour cream), avocado, a little cheese (I can’t go without cheese), and fresh cilantro. It heats up great for lunch the next day and just keeps getting spicier and tastier. We love to pair ours with La Brea Semolina Artisan Bread. MMM!

Enjoy!
