Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

This chili is super creamy and spicy. It gets its creaminess from refried beans. Who knew using refried beans as a thickener would be so tasty? (Probably everyone but me). This chili also makes terrific leftovers.

It really doesn't need any garnish besides a squeeze of lime and some fresh cilantro.

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili


  • 1 T olive oil

  • 20 ounces of ground turkey, divided into chunks
