Slow Cooker BBQ Turkey Chili Recipe Notes
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.
