  • 1/2 c
    finely chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 pkg
    of your favorite taco seasoning

    diced tomatoes (i've also done it with mexican style diced tomatoes - adds an extra spicy kick if you like it spicy)

How to Make Cold Day Taco Chili


  1. In a big pot saute the onion and turkey until it is cooked all the way through
  2. Add Taco Seasoning and a cup of water and cook for 5 more minutes
  3. Add the Tomatoes, Beans, and Corn. Bring to a boil and then simmer for really as long as you want. I had mine simmering for 2 hours because I had time but you could just as well just let it set for 30 minutes or turn it into a crockpot meal
  4. Serve with Some Mexican cheese and tortilla chips, onions and sour cream! Hope you love it just as much as we do!
