Chipotle Pepper Turkey Chili



Smoky, spicy turkey chili just in time for the cooler months ahead that will warm you right up from the first bite to the last.

In my neck of the woods our first cold front has come through (FINALLY)  and it been in the 50's at night and 70's in during the daytime. Where I live that is the beginning of Autumn.
Since is cooler outside that is when my family starts to have chili at least once a week or every other week. Its quick, easy, fast and delicious.

This is one meal that I remember eating a lot growing up and loved eating. It always made me feel like a warm hug while I eat it.

  21. Chili is such a great dish to make in a crock pot, and the nice thing is it can be used in so many ways: topping potatoes, added to pasta, on top of rice, stuffed into peppers or just as is!
