This thick, robust, hearty and flavorful Turkey Chili brings ground turkey, kidney beans, onions and garlic together with the perfect blend of seasonings. This is one of our favorite chili recipes and one the whole family enjoys. I love to serve this with Cornbread or Beer Bread with Cheddar for a complete meal.
