Protein-Packed Turkey Chili Recipe

I’ve had a lot of people asking me for the turkey chili recipe when I posted a picture of it on the How Busy Moms Get Fit Facebook page. Well, I thought I would share it here in case others were interested in it too. I can’t take credit for the recipe though. I found this while doing my new workout program Body Beast. Give it a try its delicious and healthy too! I make two batches and freeze for later!
