    should the ground turkey be browned prior to adding to slow cooker?

    • Gale Compton  February 8, 2016

      Holly, I added cooking instructions for the ground turkey. Adding uncooked turkey is the same as adding uncooked chicken, so it’s fine.
      The chili cooks plenty long enough to get fully cooked while in the slow cooker. It doesn’t take long to precook the ground turkey and it also gives you a chance to drain off any fat before adding to the slow cooker. 🙂

    Mine is a bit watery. Is it supposed to be that way?

    • Gale Compton  April 18, 2016

      If you think it has too much liquid, reduce it to desired consistency. 🙂

    I love your recipes. You do tell the servings but not the serving size. For example it says 6 servings, but does not say if that is 1 cup, 3/4 a cup, 1/2 cup etc. Would it be possible to add that to your recipes?
    Thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipes.

      Debbie, We have started with our newer recipes. Good point! 🙂

      Hi Irene, this recipe says to add “all remaining ingredients” after placing the cooked ground turkey in the slow cooker. This would include the beans!

    Hello, I was just wondering if you had any recommendation for cook time in an instant pot? This sounds so good, but using the instant pot would cut out one dirty pan!
    Thank you!

    • Nichole Furlong  January 3, 2019

      For an Instant Pot this should be ready in about 20 to 30 minutes as long as you’re using canned beans.

    Loved the chili. However, I only got 4 servings of 1-1/2 cup each. This changes the nutrition information.
