A Staple Recipe in our Home

On a dreary day like today, I LOVE to cook.  Here’s one of my fave recipes that I’ve modified in order to add a boost of healthy into a spin on a traditional dish. It’s quick, easy, and cheap! Plus, the hubs loves it 🙂

AF’s Fiesta Taco Chili (makes about 4 servings, but sometimes I just double this recipe if I want to bulk prep):

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (either 93% or 99% lean)
  • 2 small cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1/2 small can green chilies
  • 1 can black beans; drained
  • 1 can kidney beans; drained
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder


  1. Brown the turkey in a skillet; drain any fat
  2. Chop onion; drain and rinse beans
  3. Combine onion, beans, and ground turkey into crockpot (I spray the crockpot with nonstick spray or use a liner)
  4. Mix in tomato sauce, green chilies, taco seasoning, and chili powder.
  5. Cook in the crockpot on low for 6-7 hours
  6. Top with sour cream and green onion


Plus, it’s very Weight Watcher friendly (more on my continued journey through this later!)

Stay tuned fellow chili-lovers,
