My husband has something in common with most men; he’s not a fan of vegetables.  It is hard to find things he likes that are healthy, but this chili was a huge success! The great thing about it chili is it’s relatively easy to make and contains inexpensive ingredients.  The chipotle peppers in this variation give it a wonderful, rich flavor. Try it out!!!


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes with juice
  • 1 small (4 oz?) can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped if desired
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup matchstick carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 T chipotle chili powder
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped jalapenos (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt

1.  Brown turkey with onions and drain fat.  

2.  Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  

Sam has been gobbling this stuff up!  Good luck and let me know how yours works out!
