  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium zucchini stemmed and chopped in 1/2" pieces
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn thawed slightly if frozen
  • 1 package McCormick Organics Recipe Chili Mix
  • 28 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 15 ounces black beans rinsed and drained
  • 15 ounces cannellini beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 lime juiced
  • For serving optional: Plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, fresh scallions, and lime wedges.


  • Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook 2 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and saute 30 seconds. Add the ground turkey and break up with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook 5 minutes or until no longer pink, then add the zucchini, corn, and McCormick Organics Recipe Chili Mix. Stir until incorporated and cook 2 minutes more.
  • Pour the turkey mixture into the slow cooker and stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and the beans. Cook over high heat for 4 hours or low heat for 6-8 hours. Stir in the lime juice and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve the chili with plain Greek yogurt, fresh scallions, and lime wedges if desire. Enjoy!


  • The ground turkey and veggies may be prepped and cooked in advance so all you have to do in the morning is dump everything into the slow cooker. You may also make the entire meal in advance, as it keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • This meal freezes very well!
