Beanless and Easy Turkey Sausage Chili

4 Comments


I hate beans.
I'm sorry to all of the bean lovers out there, I just don't like beans no matter how much molasses and honey that you pour over them. I am just not a fan. I really hate when chili is laden with beans. Beans can become a cheap filler that can take over what should be a favorite comfort food this time of the year.

So here is what I came up with when we had a cool fall evening filled with college football and baseball playoffs.


Beanless and Easy Turkey Sausage Chili

You can make this with pre-cooked turkey sausage that you have chopped up like I did or precook your own ground turkey. I added beer to my recipe which you can easily sub water in for. I just love the rich taste that beer gives to chili. This can be low carb as well since the major carbs in this will come from the tomatoes and seasoning.
I enjoyed my chili as a taco salad but, I did serve this with some chips. This could be the perfect comfort meal.

Serve alone, with cheese, over nachos, or my favorite- as a taco salad. Also, why not try this in a crock pot?

  1. This looks great! I would much rather have turkey than beef or any red meat!

  2. this looks great, but beans are my favorite part of chili, lol. I don't use the dressed up beans, all flavored in molasses, etc. I just use kidney beans. (Or, in white chili, the white beans.)
