One Pot Turkey Chilli with Rice – Fit Recipe

Reading Time: minutes

A lighter, healthier chilli recipe with turkey instead of beef. What makes this one especially easy is the rice just gets added in.

No need for extra pots or added messing around.

Who else can identify? I love to cook... but I HATE the washing up! Luckily, this dish doesn't involve much in the way of cleaning up.

I'll often make a double batch of this so I have extra to divide into portions and freeze. That's the great thing about chilli - it tastes better the next day. Once the flavours start to blend and mingle, incredible things start to happen.
