Turkey and Chipotle Chili

I have never had a chili I didn’t like, but this is by far my favorite. It is so easy to just throw everything together in a slow cooker, and a few hours later, dinner is done! We are obsessed with this delicious and healthy Turkey Chipotle Chili. You can add or take out vegetables to please your family, but it’s a great way to sneak em in 🙂
