If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious chili that doesn’t take all day to make then you’re going to love this Quick Bodybuilding Turkey Chili recipe!

Tips:

  • Top your chili with some sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, or anything else you can think of!
  • Whether or not you want to drain it is completely up to you! Animal fat is HEALTHY and since we are using lean ground turkey there isn’t going to be much there anyways!
  • Add in some Sriracha if you want it spicy!

    This is so good! And I don’t even like beans.

    Hey Derek, what are the measuring cups you use? I’ve just got some cheap plastic ones, and a lot of the markings are starting to come off. I’d like to replace them with some nicer metal ones with the measurements engraved in them.

      Hi Greg! I’m actually unsure of the brand, I’d say I got these over a decade ago when I first moved out (which probably makes you want them more). I think that most local home goods stores would have something similar though. I’ll do my best to find them online and report back!

    Hey Derek! This looks awesome! Do you think I could cook it in a slow cooker?
