I’ve been craving chili a lot lately maybe because of this cold weather so I found the PERFECT guilt-free turkey chili recipe! I always thought chili as a “fancy, complicated meal”, but this recipe is super simple and quick to fix up if you’re craving chili RIGHT NOW!! Instead of tortilla chips, I subbed it for TJ’s plantain chips, which are so delicious and healthy too! You can also add in sour cream as topping, but I opted out to be on the cleaner side hehe CHEESE I can’t give up though so I snuck some in the finished bowl! 😉 It tastes seriously AAAAMAZING! I can literally eat this every meal so I hope you decide to try it! 🙂
