This easy recipe features savory ground turkey served on a bed of tomatillos, onions and peppers. My husband and I are doing the Whole 30 diet right now and this is something we can have and it’s so tasty. This is a healthy recipe without having to sacrifice flavor. When we moved to Denver, I didn’t know how popular green chili is and I can say it seems like the state food!

Since my husband and I are eating healthy, Jennie-O ground turkey is one of your go to meats. It’s such a lean meat that our whole family enjoys. Jennie-O sent me some coupons so I could try out this green chili recipe and it did not disappoint. You have to try it out!

My family loves Jennie-O turkey and we have it at least twice a week. My kids love beef and they don’t even realize this is turkey. You can get the ground turkey in the tubes or in the little trays. Either one will work for this recipe just make sure it’s the ground turkey.

 First get a large pot and brown your turkey.
