Healthy Turkey Chili

I meant to post this recipe a few weeks back, but Turkey Chili is good all through the child months, not just fall! The best part about this turkey chili, if you ask me, is the bans chickpea noodles! I am definitely one who loves noodles in my chili and these noodles are packed with protein and fiber to keep you full for longer! This is the perfect weekday dinner meal to serve a family! Or use it as a meal prep idea and you have a weeks worth of lunches to go!
