Slow Cooker White Turkey Chili

There are many ways to make chili, but my favorite is this slow cooker white turkey chili recipe. It takes just minutes to throw together in the morning before work; then, all you have to do when you get home is heat up some cornbread or sourdough bread for dinner. A quick and easy meal with no mess!
