Tex Mex Turkey Chili

Looking for leftover turkey ideas? Look no further, we shipped up this sweet & spicy Tex Mex Turkey Chili for Tablespoon and it's absolutely delicious! Plus, it has only 5 minutes of prep time (which is important after you’ve been cooking like crazy for Turkey Day!). When the cold weather sets in, I become a slow cooker junkie! Most of the year it sits in my kitchen cupboard but as soon as the evenings turn dark and cold, it becomes my favorite way to cook.
This sweet & spicy chili has only 9 ingredients and is such a fantastic and easy meal for a chilly evening. My kids, who don’t normally like spicy food, loved this chili because of the sweetness from the Pork & Beans. My husband and I added our own hot sauce for a sassy kick and it was a winner all around. Could the directions be any easier? Throw everything into your slow cooker and let simmer on low for 6-8 hours (honestly you can get away with 3-4 hours if you're in a pinch). Enjoy!
