Now that it’s September it’s basically fall in my head. As far as I’m concerned – the second August is over, it’s fall. September = all things pumpkin, apple picking, and the best weather of the entire year! While I love nothing more than to sit in the sun all day at the beach – dealing with the heat and humidity gets old really quick. Give me a choice and I’ll always pick being cool over being hot.
I’ve been craving all of my favorite fall foods, including soups and chili. Over the weekend I just couldn’t wait any longer to make them! Turkey chili is without a doubt one of my favorite meals. My mom makes really, really delicious chili. I can remember coming home after school when I was younger and being so excited when the house smelled like it!
Chili is one of the easiest things to make…and if you have a crockpot it’s even easier! You all know I’m the crockpot queen. I truly think it’s the best invention ever. Throw everything in a pan in 5 minutes, walk away and have a meal that’s perfectly cooked and ready to eat in a few hours? Yes, Please!

There’s really no ‘wrong’ way to make chili. You can put pretty much anything in it that you like, and as long as you add in some spices, tomatoes and veggies – it’s gonna be good. I prefer to make my chili without beans. After doing Whole 30 I found that legumes were a huge part of what was irritating my stomach and impairing my digestion. When I eat them I just don’t feel good – so I left them out of this recipe, making it the perfect Whole 30/paleo friendly dinner!
You’re probably wondering – well if there’s no beans, what IS in this paleo turkey chili? VEGGIES! All the veggies. I loaded this chili up with carrots, celery, peppers, and tomatoes. There are so many fresh, delicious veggies – you won’t even miss the beans. I serve this chili over sweet potato noodles. The sweet noodles with the savory chili is such a perfect combo.
The ground turkey in this recipe is way lighter than beef, making this the perfect protein + veggie packed dish! Your family is totally going to love it. Something to note – this recipe makes a huge batch of chili (an entire crockpot full). However, it does freeze very well. It’s perfect for making one large batch, enjoying it for dinner + freezing it for later in the week!

If you’re not paleo, you can definitely add in some black or red beans to this. Chickpeas would also be delicious! I also recommend serving with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese – the sharpness is so delicious with the flavors of the chili! Do you have a favorite chili recipe? If so..share your secrets!!
