  • 1 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley or cilantro
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red chili flakes
  • 15 oz white (navy) beans
  • 15 oz kidney beans (no sugar added)
  • 15 oz black beans
  • 15 oz pinto beans
  • 15 oz lentils or adzuki beans
  • 4 cups chopped zucchini
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 avocado, sliced


1. Brown the ground turkey in a skillet and drain.


2. Turn a slow cooker to high setting. Add the meat, onion, parsley, chili powder, garlic, and red pepper flakes to the pot. Stir, cover, and set aside.


3. Open and partially drain all 5 cans of beans (leave a bit of liquid in the cans; the chili will be juicier this way). 


4. Add the beans, zucchini, and tomatoes to the cooker. Stir well. Keep the cooker set on high for 4 to 5 hours, or adjust heat to low and let simmer for 6 to 8 hours. 


5. Stir and taste occasionally, adjusting seasonings as needed. Add the salt just before serving. 


6. Top each serving with sliced avocado.
