Healthy Turkey Chili

This healthy chili is surprisingly full of flavor yet incredibly light. Like most chili it tastes even better the next day and can be made in a slow cooker. A perfect way to warm your bones on a chilly evening. Did we mention the tryptophan found in the turkey combined with our Collagen Hydrolysate makes this meal a complete protein packed with all 9 essential amino acids.
