Veggie Packed Turkey Chili

So far this winter has been much easier on us than previous years (last years 16ft snowbank/this year right now we have no snow left). But it has been very cold and frosty. We actually decided to spend a much needed week in the sun and relax in Florida. we very much enjoyed the trip and got to experience some amazing things while being there. we had a blast.

When we arrived home though we had some serious climate change to deal with we left sunny Florida at +27C and Arrived on PEI at -27C with  the wind chill, Brrrr. I almost immediately began to crave chili. As soon as the air gets cold my stomach wants chili to warm me up.  Chili is very forgiving, you can throw almost anything in to chili and make it taste good. There are so many different variations of chili recipes. I don’t think I can pick a favorite, but because I am trying to eat thoughtfully I tried to pack as many vegetables in to this chili recipe and fill it full of protein to make it healthy and nutritious and as filling as possible.

Don’t be scared to add the veggies. I have also used squash and sweet potatoes in this recipe before so go ahead and play with it make it your own.
