Appetizers for the Super Bowl are a must, but on game day you should also have something at the centre of the table that’s a bit heartier and can serve as a main dish. This turkey chili is a good one to choose, but I have to say, it’s not the best turkey chili I’ve ever had. It comes from Taste of Home, and it’s spicy and it’s tasty, and I had two bowls when I made it. But the best turkey chili I’ve ever had was cooked by my brother. And man, that stuff was addictive. When I get that recipe I’ll let you know, but in the meantime this will satisfy even the heartiest appetite during the game, or just on a chili winter’s night.
1 pound lean ground turkey $5.85
1 medium green pepper, finely chopped $0.71

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed $0.99
2 cups chicken broth $2.00
1 3/4 cups frozen corn, thawed $0.86
1 can tomato paste $0.59
1 tablespoon chili powder $1.41
1/2 teaspoon pepper $0.01
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin $0.06
Total cost $15.13
Cost per serving $3.78
1.) Heat skillet over medium heat and add turkey, green pepper, and onion. Cook until turkey is no longer pink and add garlic. Cook for one more minute.
2.) Place in a 4-quart slow cooker and stir in tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans, chicken broth, corn, tomato paste, chili powder, pepper, cumin, and garlic powder. Stir to combine, cover, and cook on low for 4-5 hours. (You can also do this stove top, like I did. Follow instructions, placing everything in the skillet after browning turkey. Bring to a boil, lower heat to low, and cover. Cook for 3 hours, or until the flavours have reached the perfect harmony you’re looking for.)
3.) Serve and enjoy!
