  3. Add in water and broth.
  4. Once the pot has been brought to a boil, turn down the heat to low or medium-low. Place cover on the pot and allow it to simmer for about an hour, allowing all the flavors to fully cook and mix together.

As you’re making this turkey chili, you can add in the featured spices (and any additional spices that you may like to incorporate) to your personal liking. As the chili cooks in its final minutes, begin cooking some strips of bacon. Serve the chili in individual bowls with chopped bacon bits crumbled on top, and perhaps a slice or two of fresh avocado. If you are not lactose intolerant and you do chose to consume dairy, you can add some shredded cheese on top of your chili. Notice how your mouth waters as the cheese melts in. Personalize your paleo turkey chili to your liking and you’ll soon find that it’ll become a cold-season favorite for you and your loved ones.
