The weather is starting to cool off and a big ole bowl of chili fits the bill! Make it hassle free with this Crockpot Turkey Chili!
Happy Friday! This week has flown by and with it has brought cooler weather to south Florida. Finally! Now I know some of you northern folks are gonna laugh at this but it’s dipped into the 60s for the low. A light jacket in the morning is a must. And the AC can finally be shut off and the windows can be opened. I love it. Fall in Florida is by far my favorite time of the year. Sure, we don’t get to experience the changing colors of the leaves or apple picking but we have some darn beautiful weather. With palm trees. And beaches. And sun!
One of my favorite things to do when the weather gets cooler is to make soups. Now don’t get me wrong, I will make soups all year long, even in the summertime when it’s 90+ degrees outside. I am not one of those people who thinks that certain soups can only be enjoyed during the fall and winter seasons. In fact, I made this Crockpot Turkey Chili in August. But the keyword here is crockpot. The crockpot doesn’t heat up my house like my stove or my oven does. And I don’t have to stand over it during certain steps of the cooking process because well, there really are only two steps to the cooking process of this chili. Cook the ground turkey, throw everything into the crockpot, cook on low for 8-10 hours. It really is that simple. It’s a win-win situation all around! So make this during the summer. Make this during the fall. Make it anytime that pleases you. Your crockpot will make it super simple! Enjoy!
