Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Turkey Chili

I made a few changes to the original recipe. It called for ground turkey, but turkey sausage was on special the day I shopped, so I used it instead. And I cut the recipe in half, which still made 7 generous cups.

Served with corn muffins and a few of our favorite chili garnishes, this easy slow cooker BBQ turkey chili made a satisfying supper we both really enjoyed.

And the leftovers make a great quick and easy lunch.

Recipe type: Main
Serves: 7
  • 1 pound uncooked turkey or chicken sausage
  • ½ packet (1-ounce) taco seasoning
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  1. If you have sausage links, cut open the casings to remove the sausage and discard the casings.
  2. In a large skillet set over medium heat add the turkey sausage and taco seasoning. Cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until sausage browns and is no longer pink, about 7 minutes.
  3. Transfer to your slow cooker. (I used my 4-Quart.)
  4. Add the tomatoes, beans, barbecue sauce and corn.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours, until the turkey sausage is tender.
  6. Using a large spoon, skim off any excess fat that has accumulated on the surface of the chili.
  7. Stir and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve with your favorite chili garnishes.
