"Crocktober" crockpot recipe challenge is off to a bang

Happy Crocktober!

We are almost halfway through Crocktober where I've been diving into some fun and delicious topics in my private Facebook Group this month. I've been posting healthy soups, stews, and other crockpot recipes every day, and I will continue to share these super easy meal ideas for the rest of October so you are stocked and ready for the upcoming colder months.

You can still join us in my Facebook Group for Crocktober and beyond.

Here are a few of my favs that we’ve been drooling over so far.

Turkey Chili

Turkey Chili



· 1 pound ground turkey

· 1 15 oz can black beans (drained first)

· 1 15 oz can kidney beans (drained first)

· 1 15 oz can corn (or ½ can if you prefer) (drained first)

· 2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes (I like the spicy kind) – do NOT drain

· 1 6 oz can tomato paste

· 1 bell pepper

· 1 onion

· Chopped garlic – 2 cloves or more if you prefer

· Salt

· Pepper

· Chili powder – generous amounts.

· Cumin

· Garlic powder

· Cinnamon – just a pinch

· (optional) – chopped carrots, chopped zucchini, chickpeas

· (optional toppings) – can top with shredded cheddar, sliced avocado, plain Greek yogurt, chopped scallions, hot sauce


· Spice the ground turkey with spices (a little shake here and there)

· Lightly sautee ground turkey, but don’t cook thru (the rest will cook in crockpot). Use spatula or spoon to prevent clumping

· Chop pepper and onion

· Add slightly cooked turkey, pepper, onion, all canned ingredients and re-add all spices to crockpot (a little shake of each again, except for chili powder where I add a few shakes)

Cook on low for about 4-5 hours or high for 3 hours or until turkey is fully cooked and all ingredients are blended nicely. Taste test to add more spices if needed
