Crock Pot Smoked Turkey Chilli

This Christmas, my mother smoked the turkey and it was the most flavorful, juiciest turkey we have ever eaten. This recipe is one of those classic after-Christmas, too-many-leftovers-in-the-fridge creations. It's filled with shredded smoked turkey, onions, beans and loads of warming spices.

The first night we had this, I served it in roasted sweet potatoes topped with cheese. The next day for lunch, we had it with tortilla chips, but it'll work really well with rice, too. The smoked turkey adds a nice, unusual flavor to the chilli and it's loaded with beans, but my toddler didn't even notice as he gobbled it up.

As is often the case when I make chilli, I didn't bother measuring everything. I just chucked ingredients in, so there are no measurements. Instead, try adding more of what you and your family do like and less of what you don't and see what you come up with. No two chillies are ever the same anyway!
