5 steps to making low carb turkey chili

Saute red onion and garlic in olive oil. (Photo 1)

Add ground turkey, stir, and turn heat up to medium. Cook until the ground turkey is cooked through. (Photo 2)

Add chili seasoning and chopped bell pepper. Stir to thoroughly incorporate the chili seasoning into the turkey. (Photo 3)

TIP: The bell pepper is meant to be a bean substitute, so feel free to chop it small. I personally chop mine a little larger, but do what appeals to you most!
