Turkey and Italian Sausage Chili

Turkey and Italian Sausage Chili

Turkey and Italian Sausage Chili just hot a spot each and every time.

Don’t just love a good bowl of piping hot chili? I can’t even tell you how much I love chili, especially over crunchy french fries.

I am experimenting with different types so I’m planning to post different recipes this year.

Perfect for any sporting house parties; football, baseball, and so on. Also, it’s perfect for those long winter days, or when you simply want a bowl of comfort.

Most of the time, I would add a bunch of vegetables, such as onion, kale or spinach, celery, etc.

Sometimes simple seasoning gives me that kick to kill the cravings like one we have here.

This is a quick chili, so you do not require to cook all day, but approximately 30 minutes altogether.

I am on the mission to try recipes that my friends are making for years, and when I find one that I love, I will share it with you guys.


This one is all mine though. I wanted to skip the beef and make a somewhat lighter version using ground turkey.

That being said, we all know that I love this even more with ground beef, so if you have it you can use it instead of turkey.

Turkey and Italian Sausage Chili

Since I had an Italian Sausage in my fridge, I thought it would give a superb flavor, and yes, I was right.

It was not overly spicy, although people that do not eat or like spicy even this would be too much. After all, it’s chili so you’d expect a little heat.
