An easy dinner, coming right up!
All the work for this meal comes up front. Chop up your onion and sauté it in oil for 4-5 minutes, then add the ground turkey and cook until no longer pink.
Meanwhile, chop the green pepper and throw it into a crockpot. Add all the other ingredients except potatoes. Add the turkey and onion mixture as well once it’s done cooking. Turn your slow cooker on low for 6 hours and walk away.
Just about an hour before dinner, wash your potatoes, poke with a fork, wrap in foil and bake. They’ll bake for 45-60 minutes at 425*.
Serve generous ladles of chili on top of halved potatoes, garnished with Greek yogurt, avocado, cheese, and chives. What a beautiful array of colors and flavors! Even though it seems simple – just a potato and chili – I couldn’t even finish mine, it was so filling!
