I called it Rainbow Turkey Chili because of the colorful ingredients in it – when I put everything in the crockpot, I thought it looked so pretty.

I’ve always loved chili and normally I make it with ground beef, but I had some ground turkey in the freezer so I pulled that out to use. It’s a bit healthier and leaner than beef.

You’ll notice the secret ingredient in the recipe – strong black coffee. It adds a deep dimension and such a great flavor to the chili! I love deep flavorful chilis and this one fits the bill perfectly. (I actually just finished up a bowl of the leftovers for lunch today – this time I added some avocado and shredded cheese to it).

When you cook your ground turkey (note – you could replace it with beef), season it as much as you like. Like I said, I love strong and deep flavors so I tend to really season it with chili powder and cumin!

Dump everything in the crockpot, give it a big old stir, and let it cook for a good long while. I started mine around 8:30/9 in the morning and we ate around 6 so it had about 8-9ish hours to cook. I love when the whole house smells like chili ๐Ÿ™‚
