Paleo Turkey Chili

I’m a little out of season with this recipe but I love it and wanted to share it! Chili is delicious and filling but may not always be Paleo due to the beans, cheese and whatever else you may add. Here is a healthy version that is 100% gluten free and Paleo!

Paleo turkey chili


-2lbs extra lean ground turkey

-2 cubanelle green peppers, diced

-1/2 red bell pepper, diced

-1 shallot, minced

-3 celery stalks, diced

-1 zucchini, shredded

-1/2 tsp. minced garlic

-28 oz diced tomatoes

-28 oz crushed tomatoes

-2, 4 oz cans diced green chiles

-1 cup beef broth

-tbs. paprika

-3 tsp. chili powder

-2 tsp. cumin

-olive oil


Saute peppers, shallot, celery, and garlic in a saucepan with 2 tsp. of olive oil until tender.

Add zucchini and cook for 3 minutes at medium high heat.

Remove the veggies from the pan and add in another 2 tsp. of olive oil.

Add ground turkey to the pan as well as all of the seasonings and cook until turkey is no longer pink, breaking up the turkey as it is cooking.

Add veggies back into the can along with the 2 cans of tomatoes, the green chiles, and the beef broth at medium heat.

Let simmer on low heat for at least a half hour to an hour.

You can add in as much beef broth as you like, depending on how thick you want the chili to be.

What do you like to eat with your chili? What other comfort foods are you missing on a healthy lifestyle?
