Turkey Black Bean Chili

Turkey Black Bean Chili

Superbowl Sunday is coming up. Who are you rooting for? We are a huge football family – weekends, Monday nights and Thursday nights are dedicated to watching football from September through Super Bowl weekend.  My husband is a huge New York Giants fan, but three of our boys root for different teams (much to my husband’s chagrin), so you can imagine the banter that goes on during football season. Now that we are down to one team, namely the Giants, that has two fans in our family, we will all be gathered around the big screen this coming weekend, hopefully cheering for the same team.

I’m still mulling over which chili recipe to make this weekend, but in the meanwhile, I thought I’d share some healthier chili recipes that caught my eye. Last year, I put together a Roundup of Healthy and Hearty Soup, Chowder, Stew and Chili Recipes and a Roundup of Healthy Super Bowl Recipes, so you can reference these as well. For more fun Super Bowl recipes, check out my Super Bowl Pinterest Board.

  1. Thanks for including my recipe. There are so many great ideas here that I almost — almost — want to plan a Super Bowl party just so I can make some of them! Turkey chili has pretty much taken over in our house. I love chili made with beef, but so many of those recipes can be adapted to the lighter, leaner turkey. Sometimes, I add a bit more heat to help the turkey along, but I think I’d add more heat to just about anything!

    • Lydia – your Turkey Mole chili caught my eye with its rich base. I agree, if you’re looking for a “beefier” tasting chili that is lighter, turkey works well as long as you punch up the flavor with some spices and heat!

  2. Great round up of chili recipes! I love some of the vegetarian ones in there.

  3. Great round up! I have so many recipes to try! Thanks for including our quinoa chili.

  4. Heidi @ foodiecrush says:

    “A house divided over Superbowl comes together over food”, isn’t that some sort of ancient philosopher’s quote? If not, we’ll make it one now. What a roundup!! I’m bummed my 49ers missed the big show and so Ill have plenty of time to roll through this great lineup since I’ll be focused on cooking and not watching! Thanks for including my turkey chili recipe. Go Giants.

    • Love that saying, and hopefully that will be the case this Sunday ;). What a game that last one was, a real nail biter. Your turkey chili is gorgeous!

  5. I’ll be playing with a few of this as the winter continues. Chili is so warming to come home to and lightening them up is a bonus!

  6. Oh, they all sound so good, I wouldn’t know where to begin!!

  7. Love the roundup Jeanette. I was just thinking I should make my chili. Never posted it on my site. BTW my guys are huge Patriots fans & I go along for the ride! :)

  8. My eldest son is a very big Giants fan. In fact, it’s been hard to get his Giants’ jersey off of him long enough to wash it! This is a fantastic round-up of chili recipes. Thanks so much for including mine!

  9. Fantastic round up! I do not do football, but I do-do chili :) Thanks for including a vegetarian selection, they all sound delightful :)

  10. oh my goodness Jeanette, what a great roundup, lots and lots of yummy chili recipes. Thanks so much for including mine :)

  11. Wow, love that red table cloth in the first photo. So eye-catching! Now you’ve got me thinking about New York-ish food…

  12. What a great round-up of chili recipes! You’re making it very easy for me to choose something new this year.

  13. Loving all the superbowl excitement… (I like watching for the innovative ads but that’s about it ;)). Makes for a fun gathering though for sure. You’ve assembled so many delicious, colourful chili varieties here Jeanette – this is perfect one-stop shopping :).

  14. Aww thanks so much for including my chili love! This post is s such a great resource. Pinned!

  15. What a terrific roundup, Jeanette! There are so many great versions of chili. I’d like to try all that are pictured and listed here. :-) I make my vegetarian one with a hefty amount of portabello mushrooms included, so even hubby doesn’t complain because he gets his “meaty” taste. 😉


  16. Great roundup! Let’s be honest, the Super Bowl is all about the food anyway 😉

  17. chili is seriously the best for superbowl sunday. :)

  18. Enjoy the game! I am looking forward to checking out the chilis!

  19. Chili is a great idea for any party – especially this time of year. So easy, and only one pot to clean up at the end of the night if you use paper bowls. Win-win, in my estimation – especially if you’re making light and hearty turkey chili. Yum!
