Healthy, Low Fat, Slowcooker Taco Turkey Chili

It’s a time­less adage: slow­cook­er meals are SO a con­ve­nient. Just toss a cou­ple ingre­di­ents in the crock­pot, give it a few hours and bod­aboom bod­a­bang, you’ve got your­self a meal. One of my favorite slow­cook­er recipes is an adap­ta­tion from my mother-in-law’s taco chili recipe, but I’ve shrunk it down to more of a two per­son friend­ly size (with enough left­overs for a few days.) Not only is this recipe healthy, it’s also very inex­pen­sive to make. Fol­low the recipe below for a deli­cious meal that’s low in fat but tasty enough to seem like good old fash­ioned com­fort food.

  • 1 can whole ker­nal corn

Makes enough for 8–10 servings

Left­overs can be eas­i­ly frozen for sev­er­al months and used lat­er for a con­ve­nient meal


If you want to add a lit­tle more “com­fort” to this healthy food, add a dol­lop of sour cream and a lit­tle bit of ched­dar cheese. 😉👌🏼

And btw, Win­co seems to have the best canned food prices I’ve found.
