Slow Cooker Turkey Chili
7 Weight Watchers Points Plus
I know that Chili is normally a fall or winter meal, however this spring has been unseasonably cold. Not that I’m complaining, being 7 months pregnant and all…I can hold off on the warm weather. I am constantly trying new ways to make turkey chili; I love it. This one is definitely a keeper. I pureed half of the beans and mixed them in. Feel free to skip that step or puree all of them in you have particularly picky people in your house. Mine can deal with some beans, but not a lot, so half puree it is for us. I made a huge batch because I planned on leftovers, so you can also cut this recipe in half if you don’t feel like feeding an army or want left overs (I never turn down a left over day!)
