This ground turkey and black bean chili is semi-homemade and easy to make.

Ground Turkey Chili

Semi-homemade chili is great when you’re pressed for time.

This chili is made with a premade chili kit, ground turkey, canned black beans and cut tomatoes.

A premade chili kit because it’s quick to assemble and tastes homemade.

In a chili kit, there’s generally a packet of a chili powder blend, masa (corn) flour and cayenne pepper.

About this Recipe

The masa flour adds a nice flavor and also thickens up the chili.

Although the chili kit has cooking instructions on the back of the box, the recipe below is my spin on it.

Should there be any leftovers, the prepared chili can be put in portion-size containers (that can be put in the freezer) and stored in the freezer.

It’s convenient to pull frozen chili out of the freezer for dinner.

Then all I have to do is thaw the chili, warm it up on the stove top or microwave.

And wella, a wonderful homemade dinner.
