Who doesn’t love a great bowl of chili. And, once you taste this Italian Sausage Lentil Chili, I think you’ll convert to these cute legumes!
Easy Lenti Chili
Hey, don’t think that this Italian Sausage Lentil Chili is just for chilly night like in Fall and Winter. No, this is a chili that you can eat year round! It’s not only full of flavor and interesting textures, but it’s using the beautiful French lentil that cooks so much more quickly than the regular and larger legume.
Lentil Chili Slow Cooker
Now I have intentionally written this recipe to use a heavy pot, preferably a Dutch Oven pot
But if you want to use a muti-cooker, InstaPot or slow cooker, no problem. These appliances are great for many recipes.
Lentil Turkey Chili
I just think this lentil chili needs the loving care and little bit of time on the stove top in a Dutch Oven pot. And, this doesn’t happen with a slow cooker or instapot.
Now, I’m using sausage because it’s packed with flavor, but if you want to use ground turkey, no problem. What I would do, however, to get more flavor (ground turkey is lacking in flavor because of low fat content) you might want to add some finely chopped pepperoni.
Dutch Oven Chili on Stove
If you don’t have a Dutch Oven pot, you can use another heavy deep pot. I’ve highlighted some of my favorite Dutch Ovens after this recipe. I think it’s a fabulous addition to your kitchen if you don’t have one.
If you’re looking for an easy version of Kung Pao Chicken, then I’ve got it for you. Just sayin’! oxox ~ally
