Healthy Slow Cooker Chili Macaroni

Where I come from, chili has noodles. (All my Southern readers are screaming at their computers right now). Midwesterners generally favor a mild chili with macaroni noodles. This is my healthy interpretation of a Midwestern chili. (Don’t worry, you can always add more chili powder and eliminate the noodles). Enjoy! 🙂

  • 1 1/2 lbs. Ground Turkey
  • 1 Onion (chopped)
  • 1 Roma Tomato (diced)
  • 2 tsps. Garlic Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Chili Powder
  • 2 tsps. Cumin
  • 3/4 tbsp. Black Pepper
  • 1, 4 oz. can of Green Chiles
  • 4 Cups Reduced-Sodium Beef Broth
  • 1, 16 oz. box of Whole-Wheat or Quinoa Macaroni

Step One: Brown ground turkey and onion in a skillet.

Step Two: Transfer turkey and onion into the slow cooker, add the remaining ingredients, stir through.

Step Three: Cook for at least 6 hours on “low”.

Step Four: Cook noodles according to package directions and stir into the chili mixture.

Step Five: Serve and enjoy! This chili tastes scrumptious when garnished with reduced-fat cheddar or plain Greek yogurt.
