Oh boy — It’s finally that time of year again!

It’s that time of year when the slow cooker comes out from hiding and gets a little dusting off.

As much as I hate seeing summer go, I will admit I do get excited for all the fall food! Anything pumpkin (ahem…like this, or this, or this!), or apple (…like this or this), or any kind of soup (like Butternut Squash Soup) makes me really love this time of year.

But one of my favorite fall and winter meal prep recipes is this simple slow cooker turkey chili.

It’s the perfect warm, comforting food for a chilly night. I just love sitting on the couch under a big blanket, watching a movie, while enjoying a nice steamy bowl of this goodness.

This recipe uses one of my favorite healthy ingredient substitutions — turkey — to lighten this chili up, and you can’t even tell the difference, ladies!

I also make sure to use no-salt-added black beans (or you could make your own!), and low-sodium diced tomatoes to keep the salt content down. I used homemade vegetable broth, but you can also find low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth as well.

And the recipe just couldn’t get any easier — all you do is sauté the onion and red bell pepper for a few minutes on the stove, then brown the meat a bit. After that, place everything in your slow cooker, then let it cook away for the day.

Then when you get home later that night, you’ll be greeted with the lovely aroma of a comforting, home-cooked meal!

And like I said, I love meal prepping this on Sundays, for a super quick lunch for the rest of the week or an easy dinner.

And I like making a big batch so that I can freeze some for those hectic nights I just don’t have time to cook. I ALWAYS have a few containers in my freezer for a quick and healthy meal on-hand whenever life gets a little crazy! 😉
