Slow Cooker Chili Verde

Slow Cooker Chili Verde

2- 7 ounce cans of diced green Chiles
1 20 oz. package of 99% fat free ground turkey breast
2 cups of chopped onions
1 tsp crushed or minced garlic
2 cups of chopped zucchini
2 cups of chopped tomatillos (this would count as a tomato, which is an occasional veggie)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or 1/4 tsp of chipotle chili powder
2 cups of chicken broth
1 Tbsp of grape seed oil


Saute garlic and zucchini in grape seed oil and brown turkey breast into vegetables. Add to crock pot with Tomatillos, green chilies, onions and spices. Cook on low for 4 hours. Very filling and a great way to get those veggies in!! You may also add some other veggies that you may like. I added even more spices because I tend to like things pretty spicy!
**We also tried this using lean ground beef, beef broth and a smoky chipotle chili powder and it was YUMMY!
