Fast and Easy Recipe For Texas-Style Turkey Chili

Fast & Easy Dinner: Turkey Chili

My favorite recipe for chili is loaded with beef, takes several hours to make, and is definitely not a quick, simple weeknight super. This recipe, on the other hand, is ideal for nights when I crave the comfort of a hearty chili but don't have the time to slave at the stove.

Since it uses ground turkey and turkey sausage, it's a healthier variation, too. It's uncomplicated to throw together and great paired with a cold beer. To check out the recipe for this Texas-style (there's no beans) chili,
