21 Day Fix Extreme Turkey Chili

I LOVE Chili...really any type of chili.  I could even eat it in the summer months when it's not so cool outside!  So I love the chance to try out any new recipe!  This is a GREAT one and it's 21 Day Fix Approved!!!  Even better!
My family loved this so much that we had NO leftovers...I was kinda thinking I would have some...but it was cleaned out!  Next time I'll be making a double batch!!

This is a great recipe for CROCKPOTS...or you can make ahead of time and place in a freezer ziplock bag (gallon size after it's cooled) and freeze for later...great for meal prep!!

  1. Did this miss an ingredient? This came out to be a bowl of basically chili but without ANY liquid whatsoever. I am thinking about adding this back to my stove and adding chicken stock...it taste good but I was looking for more of a soup chilli...if that makes sense.

    1. Hi Kristen, I know what you mean...I thought the same thing, I prefer mine more "soup like" too. I think the recipe is the way Autumn intended it to be, however I typically add water to mine to make it the consistency I like. I've seen a video she's done where she is scooping this out and hers really is the way the recipe reads. She puts it into a container that has separated compartments, so hers is not "juicy" at all.

    2. Ok, well, I thought I did something wrong! Sounds like I did everything correct. I will just add Chicken Broth, because like I said it does taste good! Thanks for replying!

    3. In Fixate she adds Red Wine to hers.

    4. Stephanie, this was one from the 21 Day Fix Extreme book! :) Wine would be great, except I'd drink the rest!! ;)

  2. It's chili not soup. I love it and I live in south Florida...

    1. Awesome!! I'm so glad you love it!! I will often vary the the recipe depending on my mood...more chili like or more soup like!! Works well both ways!! 😊
