Easy Three Bean Turkey Chili


Fall is here and a bowl of chili on a cool fall evening is just what the doctor ordered. This chili recipe is so simple and easy to make and can be on the table in about 45 minutes. The recipe includes black beans, kidney beans and refried beans which makes it so hearty and filling. I typically top it with cheese and a little sour cream and serve with my jalapeño cheese cornbread muffins. Give this chili recipe a try and let me know if your family loves it as much as mine does.
