1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pound of ground turkey
1 Tablespoon of chili powder
2 teaspoons of ground cumin

2. Freeze flat.

Serving day:
1. Thaw completely.
2. Heat in a pan or in a crock pot - you may need to add more liquid - broth or water.


  1. Loved this healthy chili! The first night we had it in a bowl with cheese and the kids were scared of all of the beans. The second night, I served it over spaghetti and they loved it!

  2. This was a very delicious meal. It was loved by all, including the kids! Thanks for a good meal.

  3. This was a very tasty meal. And the quantity was perfect for our family! Thanks!

  4. I brought it to a gathering and the crock pot was scraped clean.
