I like to make hearty comfort foods to warm our bellies – and this budget-friendly jalapeno popper turkey chili recipe does the trick every time! You get a perfect amount of heat from the jalapeno pepper in this dish that warms you right up!  Unlike traditional chili recipes, this jalapeno popper turkey chili recipe uses only cumin as the main spice flavor.  There is no chili powder in the dish, but you won’t miss it one bit!

Take advantage of the hot sale on Jennie-O Ground Turkey at Safeway this week and make this delicious turkey chili recipe.  Save calories by choosing ground turkey instead of beef for this recipe and save money in the process.

The cost to make this recipe if you have to buy everything new is around $8.26, so for a family of four, the cost per serving is just $2.07 per person.  A great option when you are trying to economize and make budget-friendly meals for your family.

Jalapeno Popper Turkey Chili Recipe

Ingredients:

Directions:

1. Coat a 5-quart pot with non-stick cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, brown turkey, seasoning with salt and pepper, about 5 minutes.

2. Add remaining ingredients, reserving cream cheese. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and continue to simmer 10-12 minutes.

3. Remove lid, and stir in cream cheese until fully incorporated. Serve.

 

If you are unable to find fresh pico de gallo in the produce department, you can make your own.  Chop 2 fresh tomatoes, half an onion, a bunch of cilantro and half a jalapeno pepper.  Top with fresh lime juice, salt and pepper and incorporate into the chili.

  1. I have 3 little kids who don’t like anything spicy. Could I omit the jalapeño and have it still taste good? Or what else would you recommend? Thx!

    1. You could use diced green chiles that are more mild than a jalapeno. Or add sour cream to their bowl just before serving so it’s not spicy.
