  • 2 lbs Ground Turkey
  • 30 oz canned Chili Beans
  • 56 oz canned Diced Tomatoes
  • 15 oz canned Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Medium Red Onions (chopped)
  • 2 Poblano Peppers, (chopped)
  • 4 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 2 cups Unsalted Chicken Stock
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • Cheddar cheese and sour cream for serving

Chili Seasoning

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 4 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1 ½ tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Ancho powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder


  • Add all ingredients to the slow cooker, minus the flour. Cook on high for 4 hours or longer (minimum of 2 hours). This can sit all day and simmer if you would like.
  • In final hour add flour to a small dish and ladle liquid from the slow cooker into the flour and stir to incorporate. Once it is free of lumps add it to the slow cooker. This will thicken the chili. 
  • Serve in bowls topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream.


For a thicker chili, mash some of the beans and stir. If it gets too thick, add water a few splashes at a time to thin out.
When pressed for time, you can add the flour in the beginning, but I find you have the most control over the consistency by adding at the end.
