Amazing Turkey Chili

There are few things better than a delicious bowl of warm and comforting, not to mention easy and healthy!  This is my go to recipe for chili and it's a hit with all ages :) I like to let mine come together in a slow cooker on low heat, if you don't have one however a large pot on the stove will do the trick!  As you already know I'm a fan of spicy food!  LOL if you are not please feel free to omit or decrease the amount jalapenos and cayenne pepper.  This chili really is crowd pleaser and perfect for get's been a great addition to our Football Sundays!  One extra thing that I love is that it freezes beautifully, just put your leftovers in a freezer bag pop in the freezer and you have an easy and healthy dinner ready to go when you're short on time!!  Alright so with no further ado I give AMAZING turkey chili recipe!! :)

Amazing Turkey Chili

3 Cups Butternut Squash (chopped)
1 Sweet Onion (diced)
3 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
2 Bell Peppers (chopped)...I like red and yellow for this recipe :)
2 Jalapenos (diced)

4 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
*Optional plain greek yogurt and chopped green onion for garnish

Turn heat on slow cooker to low add sweet onion and cover.  Once your onions begin to sweat add your bell peppers and squash and cover once more.  While your ingriedients are beginning to heat up start cooking your ground turkey on the stove.  When your turkey is cooked all the way through and crumbled add to slow cooker and mix well with chili powder and cayenne pepper.  Add all remaining ingredients to slow cooker stir to combine everything and reduce heat to low.  Allow to simmer for 4 hours before serving.  Dish up chili and top with a dollop of plain greek yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped green onion if you would like :)  Serving size for the 21 Day Fix is 1 1/2 cups and counts as 1/2 Red, 1 Green, 1 Purple and 1 Yellow...
