Keto Turkey Chili

152 ratings

Chili is the ultimate comfort food. For a super-healthy bowl of the good stuff, use ground turkey! Your chili will still be meaty, but the fat content will be leaner and better for you. Fresh bell pepper and zucchini pair very well with turkey, and a jalapeno adds just the right amount of heat. Sour cream and cheddar cheese thicken this stew and just happen to taste really good!

Recipe Steps

steps 7

35 min

  • Step 1

    Start by chopping the jalapeno, red bell pepper, and zucchini into bite-sized pieces. Heat the olive oil in a large stewing pot on high heat. Then, toss in the ground turkey. Brown the turkey and break it up with a spatula.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Stir in the jalapeno, bell pepper, and zucchini. Cover the pot with a lid, and let the ingredients cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes - just enough to let the veggies become tender.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Add all of the seasonings to the pot. Pour the chicken broth in as well. Stir all the ingredients to everything is coated evenly in spices.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Cover the pot again, and bring the chili to a strong simmer. Simmer the chili for about 10 minutes. Next, stir in the cauliflower rice. Leave the lid off the pot at this point, and keep the heat at a low simmer.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Remove about a ½ cup of liquid from the pot. Transfer this liquid to a clean bowl. Use a spoon or fork to stir the sour cream into the ½ c. of liquid.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Gently stir the thickened liquid back to the pot of chili. Give all the ingredients a good stir. Let the chili simmer for about another 5 minutes to let the liquid reduce and thicken more.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    For serving, fill three bowls with 1 cup of chili. Top off each bowl with 2 TB of cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

      So good! And I usually don’t like chicken based soup but this is so great I will have to re-make this again!

        Spicy! I did not put in the full amount of broth, and I used cream cheese because I didn't have sour cream. So Good.

          If you prefer less like a soup, then simmer on low heat for about forty minutes which will reduce it considerably. Add cream to the dish at the end as boiling risks it separating. An excellent way to thicken is to put extra veggies in, remove half when cooked, liquidize, and add back to chilli.

            Good soup but not my idea of ‘chili’.

              Very good. I did alter it some. I used banana peppers instead of jalapeño peppers (gives me heartburn), and I added chili powder. I’m not a fan of zucchini so left that out. I used frozen 3 pepper blend with onion. I didn’t measure the seasonings. Just poured and added to taste. Added the sour cream straight to the pot and mixed (I don’t like to do dishes 🤷🏽‍♀️). Came out REALLY good!!!!

                I was tempted to “doctor” this recipe but gave it a chance as it was written and the seasonings were very good. Enjoyed it and will make it again. Easy to modify with other veggies on hand.

                  It’s more of a veggie soup than a Chili. It tastes good though. Less liquid and it would be perfect.

                    A really great chilly, tasty and filling. I will definitely be making this dish again. Very easy to prepare, and it is worth the prep time to get such a tasty chilly.

                        Can you used fresh cauliflower?

                          I think you will just have simmer it longer.

                        Loved it! Consistancy reminds me of Zupa Tuscana. Flavor is fantastic. Doubled and family loved it too.

                          I loved this soup. I doubled the recipe, other than the jalapeños. It was still quite spicy so if you don't like spice, you may want to reduce the jalapeños.

                              No body to the soup, but I like the heat of the jalapeño.

                                This is SO good. I doubled the recipe, tripled the spices and added small crimini mushrooms (quartered and browned) for smokiness.

                                    If I use frozen cauliflower rice should I cook it first and the drain it?

                                            Very good, I add green onions (1/2 cup), and 1 TBS of chili powder.

                                              So good! I added some cilantro, then an extra dollop of sour cream and a diced green onion. The perfect chili burn 🥵🌶🔥 😋

                                                This is so yummy. I altered the recipe a bit. I didn’t have jalapeños at home so I added Rotel tomatoes.

                                                    I loved this recipe. I lost my jalapeño in the car somewhere and substituted another kind of spicy pepper(hatch) and it was excellent. Very satisfying.

                                                      Delicious and satisfying, only suggestion is to reduce the liquid otherwise its more like a soup and not chili. Definitely will make again. We used broccoli instead of cauliflower and it was delicious.
