Fresh is best

I love this recipe because it uses fresh ingredients. Nothing against our canned friends, but they can contain some preservatives and such that you may want to avoid. So whenever possible, I use fresh ingredients. Even beans. I’m able to get all my dried beans from a local source, so I actually purchase them all in October, and use them during the year. I’ve found the best way for me to save time, because they do take longer to prepare, is to cook a bunch of them in my slow cooker, and then freeze them in quart size bags. Then when I’m ready to use them for a recipe like this one, I have them at the ready. They don’t take too long to thaw.

21 Day Fix Crock Pot Chili


1 lb lean ground turkey
1 cup onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, pressed
1 cup yellow pepper, chopped
1 cup orange pepper, chopped
1 cup red pepper, chopped
1 4oz can mild chopped green chilis
2 cups navy beans
2 cups pinto beans
2 cups kidney beans
2 cups Turkey broth (can use chicken or vegetable)
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce (all natural, no sugar)
1 Tbs chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
Cilantro for garnish
How to make 21 Day Fix Crock Pot Turkey Chili:
Sautee onions until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add ground turkey, and brown until cooked through.
Add garlic, stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Transfer to slow cooker.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
Serve garnished with cilantro.
(NOTE FROM CARRIE: This serves 8-10, but I’ve figured out the containers based on 8 servings. One serving equals roughly 1 green container, .5 red, 1 yellow.

Since we’re talking slow cookers, this is my favorite slow cooker. I like that it automatically switches to the warm setting when it’s finished cooking.

I was just looking for a recipe like this last night, so I’m glad that you’ve posted it today! I’ve been wanting to try a made from scratch chili, to see if it’s any more cost effective than just buying the canned stuff when it’s on sale, and had no idea what the right beans would be for it…and now I do! Thank you! πŸ˜€

I’m so glad you like the recipe! You can really use any beans you like for this, I just happen to like a mix. I’ve never really compared the pricing, but on a very rough estimate, I’d say this recipe would be between $1.50-$2.00 per serving. You could bring that cost down by substituting ground beef for the turkey (often that’s less expensive) and using Green pepper and maybe one other colored pepper. Where I live the colored peppers at times are pricey. It also depends on how much you spend on tomato sauce and broth, etc. I estimated on the higher end, but all in all, I think this is pretty affordable! πŸ™‚ And, you can’t beat the fresh taste!!


This looks so good! Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for coming to our party and sharing such an amazing masterpiece! I hope to see you next Monday @7 because we love to party with you! Happy Wednesday! Lou Lou Girls

That looks absolutely delicious. I am a little jealous that you have a bean guy!

How much is considered 1 serving? 1 cup of chili?

Tomato sauce is counted as purple not green!
Turkey broth has to be counted as well it’s red

Hey love the recipe!! Just wondering, wouldn’t you need to count the beans as a servings of carb, yellow container ?

Hi love the recipe! Just wondering, wouldn’t you need to count the beans as a serving of carbs, yellow container?

Do you used canned beans?

I used canned beans. Each can contained 1.5 cups of beans instead of the 2 cups the recipe calls for but I just say less calories right? The chili was good. I liked it just with cilantro but my kids loved adding lime, and tortilla chips. All four of my kids ate it and that’s saying something!

Hi! I made this last night; it makes a HUGE pot and it is so good. I also just started the 21 day fix… one red container is just not a lot πŸ™ I want more of it to eat!

Based on the above comments one serving is 2 cups of the soup! πŸ™‚

did you use canned beans or raw beans?

Were the fresh beans already cooked, or do they cook in the crockpot?

I think I mess it up, I up dry beans in the crock pot but it seems like there is not enough liquid, and 6 cups of dry beans seems like a lot

Accidentally used my beef broth, instead of chicken, hoping it tastes okay!

Don’t know what I did wrong, but when the 8 hours were up the beans sucked up all the liquid and there was nothing left. I put tbe correct amounts. Beans are also still under done.

Two things; you mention you cooked the dry beans before hand.then freeze them. So when ready to make the chili, do you still cook the beans again for the required time? Next question; at end of the cooking time, are the vegetables over cooked a bit?

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong it turned out horrible. The beans are still rock hard and used up all the juice. Followed the recipe exact but it seems like there’s way too many beans for the amount of liquid being used.

I followed the recipe to the letter. No go. The beans were not cooked all the way through and it was dry. There was no liquid left. I cooked on slow for 8 hours. So if this is one of those recipes where you have to improvise or modify in some way that I don’t know about, I think that it doesn’t do any good to share a recipe where there is more needed than what is posted.

How many cups is one serving of this?
