Chilli is one of my favourite meals to batch cook and portion to have on hand in my fridge or freezer. This protein packed chilli con Turkey is especially warming at this time of year. This recipe is packed full of lean protein thanks to the use of turkey in place of traditional beef mince.

It is extremely filling with the inclusion of extra vegetables and the kidney beans so I don’t find I need rice with it but feel free to serve with some in line with your carbohydrate allowance.
