Is chili better in a crock pot?

We personally think chili is better in a crockpot because it can simmer for a long time. The longer it simmers, the better the flavor meshes together and gets yummy!

How can I thicken chili in a crock pot?

You can thicken chili in a crock pot easily by mixing in 1-2 tablespoons of cornmeal to the chili. You could also use polenta instead if you wanted. 

Once you’ve mixed either option in, let it cook at least 10 more minutes on warm to thicken up.

Can I make this 21 Day Fix turkey chili recipe on the stove?

Yes! You’d just want to cook your turkey (same as step 1 in the recipe card). Then, you’d add in all of your ingredients into a large soup pot and let it come to a boil. Once it’s boiling, turn it down to low and let it simmer. Stir it occasionally to keep the chili from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Just like with the crockpot, the longer you let the chili simmer, the better it will taste!
