This is the best turkey chili recipe – I’m so excited for you all to try it! It’s hearty and meaty with tons of flavor and the perfect amount of kick. The addition of zucchini might get a side eye from chili purists, but trust me, it tastes great in this recipe. You’re going to love it.
My mom got this recipe from her good friend Beth who makes it every year for a get together they have around the holidays. It’s always a huge hit, so my mom made it for us a month or so ago when I was over for dinner and I basically swooned. You can make it using leaner ground turkey (like 99% lean breast meat), but it didn’t save any Weight Watchers points per serving and I felt like the 93-94% lean turkey gave it even more amazing flavor.
This chili is so tasty and filling that you won’t believe a serving is only 6 Weight Watchers SmartPoints or 278 calories. It also takes minimal prep, freezes great, and tastes just as good (maybe even better) as leftovers the next day. Get ready to make your new favorite chili!
