When it's cold and blustery, and you think you may never see Spring or get warm again, try our healthy recipe for turkey chili, it'll warm your soul. Using turkey instead of beef cuts the fat, but not the flavor in this cold weather favorite. All the good stuff you want in a hearty chili recipe is here, to deliver a flavor packed meal that will delight eveyone around the dinner table.

To make this recipe even better for you, try serving the chili over whole wheat pasta or brown rice, and use a low fat cheese on top. While the chili is cooking, throw together a quick salad, and you've got a complete, healthy meal that your family will love.
