"This is an easy chili recipe that you can throw in the slow cooker and forget about all day. Great topped with Cheddar cheese, crushed corn chips, and a dollop of sour cream." — LauraKKH

black beans, drained
red pepper flakes
ground black pepper

EXCELLENT! This will be a regular on my recipe rotation. I took the recommendations from many of the other comments:
- 1 can chopped tomatoes with chiles in place of one can of soup
- 1 can white beans instead of red kidney (I don't like the red ones)
- 1 can of corn (great addition and adds color!)
- 1 (4oz) can green chiles
- 1/2 can extra water
- I cooked the onion with the meat
I browned the onion and meat the night before and put measured out the spices into a bowl. In the morning, it took less than 10 minutes to throw it all together and go. My husband had 3 bowls! Thanks for the great recipe.
Laura's Quick Slower Cooker Turkey Chili Haiku: "This was fine and good. But closer to 3.5. Less red pepper flakes!" Eek, I don't know if my child would've liked this if it had sat in the crockpot chirping w/ a whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes, so I reduced it to 1/4 tsp., and also dropped a can of kidney beans, due to what I had available. 6 hrs in the crockpot on low later and it was charring at the corners, so I had to add some water. 2 hrs. later, it was glue-thick (which in all honesty, is how I like my chili) but the crockpot was a b1+c4 to scour after dinner. I liked this chili alright, and you would never guess that it was turkey and not ground beef, but I'm not entirely sure if I'd make it again.
This is a great base for a slow cooker turkey chili. If you omit the red pepper flakes and replace one can of the tomato soup with a can of tomatoes with green chilis, this recipe is VERY kid friendly. When I want a more spicy version (I love spicy food!), I only add between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoons of the red pepper flakes. An entire teaspoon simmering all day in a slow cooker will blow out your sinuses! In addition to the black beans, I also used both dark and light red kidney beans to make it more festive. This recipe is a keeper in my recipe box. Thanks!
This is great chili! I made two pots two cold days in a row! I followed the recommendations of other reviewers: I used one can of diced tomatoes with green chilis in place of one can of tomato soup. I cut the chili powder in half (it was still spicy!), added a bit of water, and added jalepenos. Yum!
I wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! Absolutely delicious! I took the advice of some others and only added 1 can of tomato soup, but also put in 2 cans of diced tomatoes. We like spicy food so I added some diced green chiles and a couple of chopped jalapeno peppers. My husband HATES ground turkey, but he had seconds of this chili. Thanks so much for a healthy recipe that tastes like its not!
I could seriously eat this twice a week and not get tired of it... YUMMY!!!
This is one spicy chili! I only used one can of kidney beans - 2 cans would have been overload, also used the other suggestions and used one can tomato soup and one can diced tomatoes with green chiles...added 1/2 can of water so I had no complaints on it being too thick. Also added a few sprinkles of hot sauce - not sure if that is what made it extra spicy or just the fact I added a little more than the 2 Tbsp of Chili powder. Omitted allspice and you would never know. I would have to say this is a keeper but would definitely NOT give it to my 2 1/2 year old, much to spicy! Perfect with bread, a little cheese and sour cream!
This was wonderful. I substituted 2 cans of diced tomatoes for the tomato soup. Perfect meal for a chili (haha)day.
our very first time making chili, and it came out so good! we like it SPICY so we added one habernero pepper seeded & chopped, one small can of diced jalapenos, and half a tablespoon of tobasco. i was worried at first that the jalapenos would be overkill, but all that time in the slow cooker seemed to mellow the flavors while infusing them into everything. also added diced fresh red and green bell peppers and replaced the tomato soup with diced tomatoes. our neighbors who used to run a restaurant in baja loved it! and so healthy on top of everything. this is a keeper!
