This recipe is something we tweaked a few times to make a healthier version we liked.
This keeps well in a crockpot on low so that it stays hot and ready-to-eat. My boys also love it served over macaroni noodles, for a healthier version of “chili mac.”
- 1 ¼ lb (~600 g) ground, skinless turkey
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 medium onions, finely chopped
- 2 green bell peppers, seeded and finely chopped
- 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 cup ketchup (we prefer Heinz)
- 2 Tbsp packed brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- Buns, split
- In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium high heat.
- Saute the onions, green peppers, celery and garlic until softened.
- Stir in the cumin and chili powder, until the vegetables are coated. Stir in the ground turkey, breaking the meat apart, and cook until the meat is about halfway cooked.
- Add the ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce, and cook until the sauce is slightly thickened and turkey is cooked through.
- Toast buns and top with the hamburger mixture.
