Slow cooker spicy turkey chilli

    2 hours 30 min

    I use the green chilli peppers that are in jars but you could use a fresh green chilli. The second part of the directions are for a slow cooker but you could easily continue cooking it on the hob.

    I was skeptical as to the taste of a chilli made with turkey although it would appear my reservations were unwarranted as this was a really tasty dish, and so healthy for you, what with turkey being a super food. I threw in about 10 finger chillies because I like my grub with a bit of poke, and it stops my housemates (spice-wussies) from eating it. Another bonus is that turkey is really cheap. I would say that the beer isn't really necessary tho, although you do have something to swig as you poke around in the frying pan. All in all, very nice - recommended. Thanks  -  09 Jan 2012
