  • 1 pound uncooked turkey or chicken sausage
  • 1/2 packet (1-ounce) taco seasoning
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) corn, drained


  • Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart.
  • If you have sausage links, cut open the casings to remove the sausage and discard the casings.
  • 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.
  • Transfer cooked meat to your slow cooker.
  • Add the tomatoes, beans, barbecue sauce and corn.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours, until the turkey sausage is tender.
  • Using a large spoon, skim off any excess fat that has accumulated on the surface of the chili.
  • Stir and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with your favorite chili garnishes.
