Earthy Turkey Chia Chili (crockpot)

November 21st, 2018 | no comments

This recipe is just brimming with Earthfoods! And because it’s chili, you can hide just about anything in there and no one will ever know.

Although I wish I would’ve thought of it, I must confess, chia in chili is not my idea. This brilliant use of chia seeds came from a woman who attended one of my presentations a few months ago. And she was right…you don’t even know those little stinkers are in there! To learn more about the benefits of chia seeds, click HERE

Also adding to the “earthiness” of this recipe are spices (including turmeric…BONUS!), beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions! 

Just be sure your tomato sauce contains no sugar in the ingredient list. You’d be surprised how some brands sneak it in. The same goes for the canned tomatoes.

Enjoy a bowl of Earthy Turkey Chia Chili with a side of Paleo Cornbread Muffins and you’ll feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Full belly? Oh yeah!
