“This healthy turkey chili will blow you away! It's great to bring to pot-lucks and also great to satisfy your family! I've been making it for years and when fall and winter come around I get constant requests. When feeding a large party I will sometimes add macaroni or shell pasta and some cheese. I keep some in my fridge to have for lunch, dinner and a late night snack. It's a bit addictive! Adding cinnamon really rounds out the flavor and makes is a bit different from other recipes. If you are weak with spices, you may adjust accordingly.”
