If you don’t want to use ground turkey, you could absolutely substitute it out with ground chicken. The choice is yours! Here’s another SWAP option — if you can’t do hot, swap the “tomatoes with chilies” for just plain “diced tomatoes” and you will be good to go.

In the end, I want to make sure that you enjoy what you are eating and just because I post something that has a little kick to it, doesn’t mean that you have to eat it that way.

Can I Substitute Turkey For Chicken?

With this quick chili recipe, you can swap out the meat as you choose. If you only have ground chicken on hand… or beef… go crazy and use what is in your fridge. No worries!

What Are The Best Beans To Use For Chili?

In this recipe, we featured a white bean, but again, you can use whatever you have on hand. Chili is very forgiving. If you don’t have any white beans on hand, consider cannellini beans, pinto beans, black beans, or navy beans. It all works! 

What Are Some Turkey Chili Toppings To Try?

We can have some fun in the toppings department! Consider avocado, sliced jalapeno, red onions, sour cream, or even shredded cheese. Naturally, fresh herbs always kick this dish up a notch.
