Holiday traditions are big in my family, and on the Lane side, one of our favorite traditions is our annual Halloween Soup + Chili Cook Off, followed by some good ol’ fashioned trick-or-treating! The kids love getting together with their cousins and comparing costumes, and the adults love diving into bowl after bowl of hot, yummy soup or chili. Each year, we try to find a healthy recipe to share with everyone, and after years of trial and error, I think I’ve finally perfected the art of Turkey Chili…and it literally takes 10 minutes to make! Seriously, this recipe is so simple and easy, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. It has the perfect combination of flavors—I can’t get enough. And for all you carb cyclers, it’s an excellent option for a high-carb meal!
