This is one of those recipes where you don't measure much, chop everything up and through together. The more vegetables the merrier!
2 lbs ground turkey
2 organic bell peppers red, orange or green ( bell peppers are in the dirty dozen so always buy organic!)
1 large onion
3-4 cloves garlic minced
2 12 oz jars of salsa
handful of cilantro chopped
2 handfuls of spinach chopped ( I like to add greens when you cant taste it)
1 jalapeno chopped (if you like it spicy)
seasoning: chipotle chili powder and cumin
optional ingredients: carrots, celery, cheese, avacado
Put your crock pot to low heat and add 2 tablespoons coconut oil minced garlic, chopped onion, chopped bell peppers and any other vegetable you want to put in there..
On stove top crumble turkey and cook through. I add a chipotle seasoning from whole foods and cumin. About 2 tablespoons of each.
Once meat is cooked through I add the meat to the crock pot and pour 2 jars of salsa over and add remaining ingredients.
Then you mix all together in the crock pot and let cook 3-4 hours. I have also made this chili on the stove top and heated all ingredients together if I did not have time to use a crock pot.
We like to add shredded cheese and avocado to the top!
