A big bowl of this hearty turkey chili is so comforting and warming, which is exactly what we need as the days grow darker, damper, and colder. Don't get me wrong, I love fall, but mostly because I get to eat meals like this. This chili is packed full of veggies and beans, and has so much flavor you won't even realize it's not beef! Served with a bit of cheese and sour cream, this chili is an amazing comfort food for fall.

The process to make this chili is really easy, the hardest part is waiting to dig in as it simmers away. This recipe makes about 6 servings of chili, but it is one of my favorite meals to freeze because it reheats so incredibly well. I usually always have a portion of either this chili or my Vegan Instant Pot Chili stowed away in my freezer for a tasty, healthy, quick weeknight dinner.
