“I am definitely a chili-lover, and decided to try a healthier variation of my regular chili and add ground turkey instead of my usual ground beef. Definitely a keeper! Even better with some sour cream and shredded cheddar. To keep it healthier for my current diet, I did not add much turkey. If you are a meat lover, I suggest you add a little more ground turkey, maybe about a pound. You could even do half ground turkey and half ground beef.”
