Crockpot turkey chili made from boxed onion soup? Yessirree Bob! I came up with the idea while reaching for an organic chicken broth box at the grocery store, when one shelf up I saw the organic onion soup and thought, “Wow, that would make my chili much more yummy.” Thankfully, I was right and the chili has turned out to be one of my favorite most flavorful homemade soups of all time.
Beyond being flavor filled, it is also low in calories, inexpensive to make, feeds 20 people, and is full of nutrition. It’s super fast to put together too – it took me all of 15 minutes to throw it all in the crockpot. Substitute any of the vegetables for whatever you have around the house that is fresh.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 box organic French Onion Soup
- 1 14.5 oz can organic diced tomatoes
- 3 cans of 11.5 oz tomato juice
- 1 cup chopped organic cauliflower

That’s it. A super easy recipe for Crockpot Turkey Chili that will knock your socks off with flavor. Use organic ingredients for your culinary creation and it is even healthier. Perfect for fall or any old time you get a hankering for a hearty soup.
Yes! Broth adds more flavor than water, so makes an excellent choice. Chicken, beef, vegetable, and onion soup broth all taste delicious in chili.
1. Utilize ground turkey instead of red meat.
2. Go bean-free or substitute vegetables instead of beans.
3. Do not add cheese.
4. Utilize fresh tomato juice if possible. However, if you are sensitive to solanaceae, or nightshade plants, then you should avoid chili.
