This Fire Roasted Turkey Chili takes regular chili to the next level! Done in around 30 minutes, this chili is healthy, packed with protein, and makes for great leftovers!



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, diced 
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp paprika 
  • 2 tsp cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 tsp garlic powder 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • Red kidney beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 1 can (15 oz) fire roasted tomatoes 
  • 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce 
  • 1 cup chicken or veggie broth 


  1. In a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat, warm the olive oil until shimmering. Add the diced onion and cook stirring occasionally until onion is translucent, about 7 – 10 minutes.
  2. Add the bell peppers, chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne, onion powder, garlic and salt and pepper. Cook until fragrant while stirring constantly, about 1 minute.
  3. Add in ground turkey, breaking it up and cooking until no longer pink/ cooked through.
  4. Stir in the kidney beans, fire roasted tomatoes, tomato sauce, and chicken broth (if the chili is too thick for you, add more broth or water). Bring to a simmer and continue to simmer for 20 – 25 mins.
  5. Enjoy! Top with cheese, sour cream, jalapenos or any other toppings you want.


I like to also eat my chili served over rice. I’ve learned that this isn’t common so I highly recommend you give it a try!
