Feed Your Sister Chili

Chili is the perfect winter soup! This recipe makes many servings so it’s great for a large crowd.  Or make a batch today & freeze half for another time!! It’s spicy & delicious, perfect for the cold snowy days that are upon us! When you’re trapped in your home and have nothing to eat, reach for the chili in the freezer and voila you have a warm bowl of soup to fill your tum!! It goes great with avocado slices, some shredded cheddar 🧀 or a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream! I also like to add a few spoonfuls of brown rice or quinoa! The best part about this recipe is that it can be adapted to your dietary needs! If you don’t eat meat, just omit the turkey or add crumbled tofu.  Want to make beef chili, switch out beef for the turkey! Want to make is paleo-friendly, just omit the beans and add in extra veggies such as zucchini, sweet potato and kale! There you go, the possibilites are endless!

Feed Your Sister Chili


• 3 tbsp olive or avocado oil
• 1 tsp pink salt
• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, chopped
• 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional)
• 1 pound ground turkey/beef/chicken (you can also sub in crumbled tofu)
• 1 tbsp chili powder
• 1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
• 1 tsp cumin powder
• 2 red bell peppers, chopped
• 16 oz chicken or vegetable stock
• 1 can of diced tomatoes (28 oz)
• 2 cans of beans (I like using 2 different kinds – black, pinto, kidney or aduki are great choices.)


  1. In a large pot, add in the first five ingredients and sauté over medium heat until the onions have had a chance to sweat and soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in meat of choice or tofu.  Stir around and crumble using a wooden spoon until all the meat is mostly cooked.
  3. Add in chili powder, cayenne (if using), cumin and bell peppers. Sauté until peppers are soft, about 7 minutes.  By now the meat should be cooked as well. Keep stirring ingredients around in the pot to prevent burning.
  4. Add in stock, diced tomatoes and beans. If you are adding in extra chopped veggies, add them in now as well. Mix to combine.
  5. Let simmer for about 40 minutes.
  6. Fill your bowl with whatever toppings you’d like and enjoy!
