Healthy Chili Recipes for Weight Loss

Turkey Chili

You can still have a perfectly healthy bowl of chili with ground beef, but using turkey instead—like in this simple Turkey Chili recipe—helps you keep the protein levels high while significantly lowering the calorie and fat content.

Smokey Crock-Pot Chili

We love how much flavor this Smoky Crock-Pot Chili packs into one meal, using ingredients like chuck roast or sirloin, onions, garlic, chipotle peppers, cumin, pinto beans, and your choice of an IPA or stout beer. 

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chicken Chili

You don't have to wait until fall hits again to enjoy this Pumpkin Chicken Chili. Made with canned pumpkin, boneless chicken thighs, chickpeas, and plenty of vegetables, this chili packs in 28 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving.

Easy Chili and DIY Chili Powder

You feel too intimidated to imagine making your own chili powder, but fear not! This recipe is super simple and tastes so good you'll never want to go back to the store-bought bottles. 

Crock-Pot Vegetarian Chili

If you want a vegetarian chili option that has no meat but still plenty of protein, this recipe is a great choice. With ingredients like black beans, kidney beans, corn, and sweet potatoes, you'll also get a boost of filling fiber, too.

Copycat Wendy's Chili

If you're a lover of Wendy's Chili but want to avoid the almost 1,000 milligrams of sodium or a long list of preservatives, or you just don't want to leave the house, you can make your own copycat version with this recipe!
