Southwestern Turkey Chili

Southwest Chili

I have been wanting to make this chili for several months. With our family moving from one side of the country to the other, I never got around to making it. With Spring finally making it’s arrival on the East Coast, I wanted to make this before the heat and humidity of summer arrived.

This chili is so good and very easy to make! I am so glad I finally made this. My family loved it so much that we will be making it again no matter how hot or cold the weather is.
