Weight Watchers Turkey Chili

This healthy turkey chili recipe will feed a family of 4. It’s a comforting recipe that’s easy to keep mild or make as spicy as you like it.

I love it when I make a recipe that fits on my WW plan and that my entire family loves to eat along with me. When you are a parent, it’s tough to try to cook separate meals for your kids and yourself. Thankfully, this one is a crowd-pleaser! Plus, you make everything in one pot, fewer dishes.

Weight Watchers Turkey Chili Recipe

This recipe will feed 4 people. Even if you don’t have a family, you can still make this meal once and eat it throughout the week for your meal prep. Here’s how to make this delicious chili!

Why Use Ground Turkey In Chili On WW

Traditionally, people use ground beef in chili. I used 99% fat-free ground turkey because it’s a ZeroPoint food on Weight Watchers. According to WW, red meat (like beef) is higher in saturated fat, so it has more points than either turkey or chicken.

You can use ground chicken in this meal and it won’t affect the points one bit. I prefer the taste and texture of the ground turkey.

Turkey Chili Ingredients:

Here’s what I used in my turkey chili, along with any substitutions you can make.

  • 99% fat-free ground turkey
  • Corn kernels
  • Diced tomatoes and green chilis – I used canned, but you can chop up a few cups of fresh tomatoes instead
  • Dark red kidney beans – I used one can, but you can soak and cook dry kidney beans too. Do not use canned chili beans because they often have added sugar that will alter how many points this recipe is worth.
  • Beef broth
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cumin
  • Chili Powder

Directions:

On low heat using 2 sprays of cooking spray, brown ground turkey in a large pot until fully cooked and no longer pink.

The ground turkey is browned in the stock pot before the other ingredients are added to make the chili recipe.

Add corn, tomatoes, tomatoes with chilies, beans (drained and rinsed) and broth to the pot.

Vegetables, beans and corn are added to the stock pot to simmer together on the stove.

Next add salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, ground cumin and chili powder. Stir well.

Bring to a boil. Cover the pot with a lid and reduce heat to low. Continue cooking for 30 minutes.

How To Make Turkey Chili In The Slow Cooker

This is a really easy recipe to put in the slow cooker. Just brown and drain the ground turkey first. Then, add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and mix them together. Let it cook on low for about 4-6 hours or on high for 2-4 hours.

How To Store Leftover Chili

If you have leftovers, you can store them in the refrigerator. Just put them in a sealed, airtight container. It will stay fresh for up to 5 days.

What To Eat With Turkey Chili

This is a very filling meal, you don’t need to add much to it. If you want a healthy side dish idea, roast some vegetables in the oven. My favorite veggies to eat with chili are carrots because they have a slightly sweet taste.
