10 of the Best Healthy Chili Recipes

The best healthy chili recipes to make year-round for parties, weeknight dinner, game day, and everything in between. These easy chili recipes have vegetarian and slow cooker options to make prep time a breeze.


Sunday’s call for relaxing at home, watching the snow fall (or blizzard, if you’re also in Chicago) and making big batches of flavorful, cozy chili. Truly nothing better.

You’re probably familiar with my best healthy turkey chili recipe. It’s one of the most popular recipes on AK of all time, and is my tried and true recipe that I’ve probably made one hundred times. Did you know I have about 9 more chili recipes that you’ll love? That’s right, you came to the right post for all of your game day, weeknight dinner, and meal prep chili needs.

These recipes are all packed protein, have delicious vegetarian options, and are an excellent way to use your slow cooker. You’ll find a mix of ground turkey, chicken & bean-based chilis, but feel free to use your favorite ground meat or beans. I love making chili because it’s totally customizable to whatever you’re feeling.

Double or triple these for a big crowd (Super Bowl Sunday, anyone?) and enjoy a warm bowl of healthy chili with a few extra chips on the side.
