This healthy turkey chili is the very best! It’s loaded with ground turkey, tomatoes, green chiles, garlic, onion, and lots of seasonings. So hearty and easy to make – ready in only 30 minutes! Dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo, and Keto too!

When I say this is The Best No Bean Turkey Chili I am not messing around. It really is! It has some heat, can be thrown together quickly, and tastes like everything you’d want an incredible chili to taste like.

Since my husband was diagnosed with alpha-gal syndrome (which means he can’t have red meat) I’ve been working to create more recipes utilizing ground turkey. This is the latest and, friend, it’s a tasty one.

My original chili recipe, No Bean 30 Minute Chili, is dang delicious. In fact it’s the most popular recipe on my website! I know many of you already make it with ground turkey instead of beef and that’s great! If it’s your favorite stick with it! But I wanted to make a version that was specially designed for ground turkey. This one has more seasoning and a can of green chiles to really make that ground turkey work splendidly. I know you’re going to be oh so happy with the end result!

You’ll start by sautéing onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Then brown your ground turkey. Once done, add in all other ingredients and let it simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

The combination of garlic, onion, green chiles, and lots of seasoning give this chili a very rich spicy flavor. We can’t get enough of it!

And don’t forget, this chili is ready in just 30 minutes so it’s fast enough to enjoy on a busy weeknight.

In the mood for more ground turkey recipe ideas? One of our favorites is the recipe for Cilantro Turkey Burgers. I swear those burgers are every bit as tasty as beef burgers. You’ll find that my Slow Cooker Turkey Meatballs in Marinara are another weeknight meal win too!
