go-to Turkey Veggie Chili

this is my go-to chili recipe! this is also my "the heck are we having for dinner tonight?" recipe. it changes depending on which veggies are in our fridge but it's always delish, healthy, and flavorful. 


most ground protein will work here guys; especially 93% lean or higher chicken, beef, or bison.  i recently had elk for the first time at Fuddruckers for family burger night and it was pretty delish.  however, the longer the meat cooled down, the tougher it got.


the veggies are customizable to whatever you have available, toppings included! i've thrown butternut squash or sweet potato chunks in there for a hint of sweetness.  know that the longer the chili sits, the stronger the flavors become.  


 if you make this, don't forget to tag me on social so i can see it! i love reposting the recipes you guys love and use from me.  


one last text box to ramble in before the recipe, hahaha. enjoy!

what do you top your chili with?  i used to crush saltine crackers over my chili growing up.  these days, ripe, creamy avocado chunks are a must!
