Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Turkey Chili

Serves: 7


  • 1 pound uncooked turkey or chicken sausage
  • ½ packet (1-ounce) taco seasoning
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) corn, drained


  1. If you have sausage links, cut open the casings to remove the sausage and discard the casings.
  2. In a large skillet set over medium heat add the turkey sausage and taco seasoning. Cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until sausage browns and is no longer pink, about 7 minutes.
  3. Transfer to your slow cooker. (I used my 4-Quart.)
  4. Add the tomatoes, beans, barbecue sauce and corn.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours, until the turkey sausage is tender.
  6. Using a large spoon, skim off any excess fat that has accumulated on the surface of the chili.
  7. Stir and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve with your favorite chili garnishes.
