Add remaining 2 Tbsp of olive oil to pan, and heat over. Add lean ground turkey and brown on both sides, being careful not to overcook. Add remaining ingredients and incorporate everything together, stirring occasionally.

Turn up the heat and bring chili to a boil. Cover chili. Stage 2: Throw everything in Once the olive oil has warmed up (takes about one minute), toss your carrots, celery, bell pepper, onion, and garlic After the 10 minutes are up, add your chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon. Stir.

Now add the diced tomato, peppers, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, water, salt and chili powder. Stir. Now add your beans. Bring this to the boil for 5 minutes.

This recipe uses quark in place of cream cheese and reduced-fat sausages to keep it lean – without skimping on flavour. Recipe here. 4. One-Pot Lentil Dahl.

Batch cook your lunches in advance with this flavoursome, vegan-friendly, high-protein. Protein helps to maintain lean muscle, grow and repair all cells in your body, and regulate your appetite, according to Erin Palinski-Wade, R.D., C.D.E., the author of Belly Fat Diet for Dummies.On average, active women need about half a gram of protein per pound of body weight every day (so an active 140-pound woman would need 70 grams of protein). This is my personal favorite high protein, low fat, chicken chili recipe. Portion it out into containers and have ready-to-go chili for the week!Topped with chili sauce, sesame oil, and liquid aminos, this flavorful fish recipe from The Big Man’s World strikes a perfect balance between sweet and spicy.

And even though it sounds gourmet. Brown ground beef in a large saucepan or Dutch oven on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Drain off excess fat and liquid.

Add worcestershire sauce, onion, and garlic, cooking over medium heat until onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients, stirring to combine. Add corn, lime juice, oregano, and cilantro, cover again and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Your voice sounds like Patrick Bateman from the movie “American Psycho” I feel like I’m going to have my head chopped off Paul Allen style if I don’t make this recipe haha

  • I just watched a video of Scooby just dumping protein powder into a glass of water. Now he’s making chili with several gas burners going. He’s come a long way lol

  • This looks simple and easy to make. I made some chili a while back and I put a little more in mine, but that’s the great thing about watching all these different meal prep videos. It gives you ideas and a base to start from.

  • All these people who are complaining about the eight hour cook times are penis brains and have no fundamental cooking skills. This takes 5 mins to throw in the crockpot then you check on it eight hours later and eat it for dinner. Are you guys that fucking lazy?

  • Hey dudes, great recipe, think I’ll be investing in a slow cooker!
    One quick question, what would you recommend to someone who can’t stomach pasta or rice (long story revolving around ignorant doctors, extended anti-inflammatory use and a now dodgy stomach). 

  • What flavor are the organic bullion cubes? I assume beef to match the chilli but I don’t want to be the idiot who ruins his chilli with the wrong bullion. In all seriousness if not for these cooking videos I would have never lost 60 lbs. Thanks for the inspiration Scooby.

  • White American cheese mixed in and light sour cream. Makes an awesome chip dip if you make the chili less wet by simmering it longer.

  • I made this the other day and it was awesome. For any Australians I used the masterfoods Mexican chilli powder from woolworths and in the measurements from this video and it came out about medium hotness. I also substituted 5 tins of beans instead of doing the dried beans. 6 tins of beans would be fine as well but I doubled the mince and used a lean one. Rinse beans well.

  • Beautiful. Us Mexicans don’t really like to compliment foreign food (and less coming from Americans), but this one is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you man!

  • I think I’ll try that recipe. Instead of using tomatoes I’ll use tomato paste. Using the chili as sauce/topping for the good old rice.

  • haha Shawn I’m 18% bf at 178 pounds I do lot of cycling I hope I can get down to 15% bf and i be happy if I can achieve that without depriving myself like I’m doing now I was 10% bf but I wasn’t very happy.i don’t go overboard but I do have pizza and those chocolates and I’m keeping 178 lbs just fine I haven’t been to the gym in 3 months I had inguinal surgery I’m having fun cycling right now but will go to the gym and do some ab work to strengthen my core.

  • awesome Derek I’m making it this week.Derek I hope you motivate more people into making home cook meals something that lot of people don’t do

  • your option but you could always drain off the fat after meat cooks down……..I love chili…….making some today…….thank yu

  • I don’t ever use store bought chili seasoning. I always use a bunch of hot sauces, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and A1 steak sauce and honey and some other “secret” seasonings lol. I know it’s probably not great for you but it’s damn good.

  • Never been a fan of chili. I am however a HUGE fan of hot shirtless muscle men in the kitchen. Or anywhere else for that matter. Thanks for posting.

  • Up until last week, my “healthy” meals always consisted of plain ground beef w/ canned vegetables and plain cooked chicken breast with brocolli and carrots. My marriage was tetter tottering on the edge because I wasn’t being considerate of my wife’s taste buds. I came across your super easy slow cooker meals and started adding them to my arsenal. Now my wife is happy, my family is back in order. Thank you kind sir you saved my marriage.:)

  • Guys, chili is supposed to take time.  I let mine sit for 8 hours once it’s all finished.  Brown the meat separately, throw everything in, mix thoroughly, and let it thicken and stew on low.  Then again, my chili’s so thick I could probably make bricks out of it.

  • That’s looks good! I’d probably make this into a vegetarian version for myself and family by adding a variety of beans and vegetables. But now I know what to do to keep chili simple and easy to remember. Thanks! I’ve been contemplating on getting a slow cooker, but after seeing you use the pressure cooker (and reading some reviews), I feel like a pressure cooker is a much more useful tool than a slow cooker. I might think about getting one.:)

  • I’ve been a sub for a long time and not only is it your recipes and simplicity of them that keep me coming back for more. But, how in the description you put all the ingredients weighed out and then you do the calories..
    That small thing is what has you way ahead of the pack. I get so tired of watching a video and the host saying “add 2 scoops of protein or 1 can of tomatoes”..
    Well my scooper is normally not the same size as yours and I can’t tell the size of can you’re using!
    Lol Thank you very much for everything you do! =p

  • what other substitudes can i use other than ground turkey? coz im living in asia and turkey quite rare and expensive. all red meats are quite high in price due to import taxes too. Im left with chicken. What part would be nice since we need alittle bit of fat? breast would be too dry right

  • Great recipe!! You can also brown the turkey & throw everything in the slow cooker on low for the day, especially if you’re doubling the batch. Sour cream & cheese is the best topping for me.

  • Just made you recipe for a my post work out meal for the week, it tasted great! The only difference is that I seasoned the turkey with onion powder and oregano, and aded some hot chili seasoning. Also next time, I think I will put less water so it all fits in the pot.

  • Made this last night. doubled the recipe and made a mess, lol Made a huge bowl of it. Just needs a little salt to taste. Derek why do you try to use low sodium products?   Also more bulk recipes please. It would help us, who mas cook boring chicken and broccoli every week.

  • why do you use all these canned/pre cut veges, they add so much shit to them that isn’t good for you. Takes like 10 seconds to cut up a chili and some garlic.

  • Hi @scooby,
    I see you always divide the portions ahead into containers. What about putting the pot into fridge and use one container and fill it each day?

  • Hey man I’m 15 and really want to build muscle, could you post a video or respond with how you work out? Like your routine for each muscle group or whatever else you do. And I bet most people watching your vids are like me and would like some help to get started! Thanks, love your vids

  • To make a free meal plan perfectly tailored to your metabolic rate and your goal, click on the above link in the video description!

  • Why it makes me so uncomfortable to watch this while you are shirtless and with a chef hat? �� and believe is not because is attractive, it makes feel I’m watching someone that lives in a naked community.

  • Always use canned tomatoes. Why? Those are much healthier than “fresh” ones you can buy. Tomatoes in cans are much more riper than any “fresh” one you can buy, they have been heated and have more lypocin. Good choice from scooby to use them.

  • Made this just a few hours ago. Didn’t have all of the spices, but it still tastes amazing!

    Thanks for all the workout, nutrition, and life advice you’ve given to us over the years Scooby! Appreciate it ❤️

  • So… Whats the difference between dry beans and wet ( canned ) beans. i Prefer buying cannet beans… but i dont know the health benefits between dry beans… maybe anyone can help me????

  • Dismembered body parts are not food…They are the butchered corpse of a once living, breathing, sentient being who died violently.

    Here’s the key to veganism, commitment. It’s not a diet where you sometimes cheat or eventually go back to eating a “little” meat, dairy and eggs. Every time you cheat, an animal suffers or is killed. That’s the reality of what we are talking about. If you wish to be or remain vegan, you have to make a commitment to the animals. It’s ultimately not about you or your health or your pleasure.

  • Never been a fan of chili. I am however a HUGE fan of hot shirtless muscle men in the kitchen. Or anywhere else for that matter. Thanks for posting.

  • Hey Wow, I cook almost the same thing! (I watched looking for tips.)
    Pre-Do the beans, got it. Not sure I want the stock cubes, might try them though.
    Ginger is good. Cumin too. I use an arabic hot Chilli sauce. Cayenne pepper. Red & yellow Bell peppers. Carrot works too.
    I use half of all the ingredients, pretty well, but all the ground beef.
    I have been using 5 bean mix cans. Chickpeas seem OK in this.:) It is Yum
    Using the food processor to chop stuff seems to make it a bit mushy, but SO much faster.

  • Your recipe reminds me of one from Mike Dolce, that UFC Nutritionist dude. I love these chilis, I can get the meat for $8, a few bell peppers and onions for $2, and some canned beans and tomatoes for another $3… $15 bucks total and it lasts me days. This is economical, healthy, and tasty. Thank you for sharing!

  • Thank you, Scoob! I have been on the BMR diet and I try to stay around the calorie intake of 1910 per day but still have enough carbs, protein, and vitamins for losing weight and gaining muscle. This chili and 60g (410 calories)of Whey work well together and still leave room for breakfast. I make one serving of Wild rice (1/2 cup per serving of chili 570 calories total) for my chili because the is how I like it, and still there is plenty of room. It in addition, adds 24g more protein and 10g of fiber; other good vitamins.

  • Im calling out on you!! i’ve had it with you lying to all these people for so long, enough of your lies and admit it, you are actually a great cook………..:D

  • Ive got to try this asap.
    Too bad in europe chili powder is harder to find.
    Looks damn delicious.
    Also did you add the tomato directly on the water where you soaked the beans or you poured it out and then mixed it all in “new” water???
     Greetings from Spain mein Freund.

  • I like beans:(. Is this because of some hippies saying it is an antinutrient and causes you not to digest zinc not as effectively??? Even if that is true, beans have excellent source of fiber and protein, small price to pay.

  • what would happen if I only consumed this? I’m a bit lazy in the kitchen and could care less if its the same meal over and over. I would eat this 4 times a day every day for the next 2 months while bulking. Would this be okay?

  • My only problem is that they taste so good, they don’t last very long for me��. The hamburger hash? I made 3 pounds of it, and it lasted only 2 days after my workouts! Definitely need to use those containers! I put the hash in one big one and it was a mistake.

  • How important do you consider the onions that you use in chili, nutritionally speaking? I’d rather use half of the onions or less that are suggested in the recipe, and maybe double up on the garlic.

  • I think cheese is the standard topping for chili. It’s kind of hard to think outside of the box on that when people are using chili as a topping for meals. Chili dogs, chili fries, chili burgers… I’m going to roam the comments to see what people say.

  • I noticed that the chili itself is the entire meal. When my wife makes a similar chili dish (meat, beans, peppers, onion & tomato), she makes something like Broccoli on the side as we kind of look at chili as more meat than anything else. Do you really think this dish has plenty of veggies as-is? Would more on the side be caloric overkill?

  • Only a sweet person could own a dog like Amigo. Can you imagine Hitler with a dog like Amigo?  He would have remained an artist and we could have skipped the whole Holocaust nightmare thing.  They say you can tell a lot about a man by the shoes he wears, I think you can tell so much more by the dog a man shares his life with.  Beefcake is clearly a saintly dork.  Sigh….so dreamy.

  • Those bouillion cubes propably have a lot of palmoil in it which is some nasty stuff. Try adding the seasoning yourself. It’s not that hard: Salt, Pepper, mild Paprika, Oregano, Chili. Garlic should be used fresh and be browned with the Onions, Beef and Bellpeppers.

  • I made this a few days ago and its definitely going in my meal rotation.  I may modify the recipe slightly after a little trial and error.

  • That was the most lizard brain logic I’ve heard in awhile. In a month you will have all this variety! My problem is all food has a 3 day timer unless it’s pantry. I should use my freezer.

  • Hey man thank you for posting this recipe. I eat Turkey Chili from the Muscle Maker Grill and I was searching for something just like this to cook at home. I plan on preparing this as a meal over a bed of lettuce. Thanks again!

  • Hey I’m planning on make this on the upcoming weekend.

    I’ve recently been sucked into bad habits by eating mostly cookies and other snack cakes. I feel like absolute garbage. I can’t wait to get back to the gym.

  • Hey Scooby!
    In the meal plan this is for bulking by about 5% (as far as I can tell). How would I incorporate this into a cutting plan per say 10%? Would I stick with the same plan, but less of it, or should I go with a completely different plan? Thanks for the videos scooby!

  • Pressure cookers can help you cook beans in…maybe 30 minutes? But then, soaking beans overnight is the best policy to minimize gas. Pour beans in pot, add water until it covers the beans and put in a little salt. Instructions may vary from brand to brand, but for a standard cooker, I lock the cover and put in a knob that would signal release of steam. Cook in low heat for 30 to 40 mins. Afterwards, this is IMPORTANT. Switch off fire, transfer pot to the sink and pour running water on top. This would relieve the heat and the pressure. Directly opening it would be extremely difficult, but if you do, the cover would hit you. Wait for maybe 5 or 10 minutes before removing the lid.

  • Y no beans tho? Thought beans were good? I ate a shit ton of beans tonight before kickboxing, had soooo much energy, ill def be trying this tomorrow tho!!!!!

  • which slow cooker do you have? send me that link fam. also, i was in a car accident and couldnt workout for 3 years, i finally went back to the gym but my meals arent consistent, just watched your meal cutting prep videos that you uploaded a while back and im curious to know if you think i should do that type of diet. im about 6’3″ weighing at 225 pounds. im mostly chubby around my stomach and love handles. i want to get super cut and pretty much look like the photo you put in the video that i watched. you looked fantastic! so what would you recommend me do? sorry for the huge comment but a response would be such a huge benefit for me! thanks brother!

  • Looks so good I’ve thought about doing chili for my prep meals but now I have to do it’s a sign from the big man up stairs good vid bro

  • I currently have 5 of these in my fridge and 2 in my lunch bag for work, I alternate from this chili to chicken,broccoli,brown rice other than breakfast that is 99% of the time egg whites and half a grapefruit other 1% may be oatmeal. My question is if I am trying to lose weight fat am I fine eating chili for almost every meal? I’m 5’8 (172cm) 272.2lbs (123kg), Bit worried about the carbs but from a lot of people I hear carbs are your friend but if my goal is to drop weight fat will chili for most of my meals hinder this? I know its calories in calories out but still asking.


  • Honestly you looks fucking weird with your big chest and small arms.. aesthetically challenged and why the fuck are you cooking on YouTube with your shirt off??

  • So I cooked the meat and at the end of the 4 hours I had a pretty large pool of meat juice at the bottom. Should I get rid of the liquid before adding sauces?

  • 0:48 The “fatty residue” isn’t fat but protein from the juices of the meat. Fat melts when heated, protein coagulates and that’s what you see here. 

  • Wow can we get any lazier people. 4 hours to cook some ground turkey til its not recognizable. Then another 4 hours to cook tomato sauce? This chili could be done in 30 min on the stove top with a little common sense

  • Do I have to have premium to get the ingredients per grams?
    I have the free memeber ship and could not access the grams per ingredient information!!!
    In the video, you stated that the information are available for free.

  • For me this is really good eats. Love making this. Sadly it doesn’t fill you up very well and will leave you hungry. So i eat a serving of this and then 300-350g of frozen chopped vegetables with each serving. Else ill be hungry again 1 hour later.

    Sometimes i think i just have an abnormal giant stomach. I would go hungry all the times if i didn’t eat at least 1 kg of vegetables every day.

  • I do these recipe all the time, here some tips for state and speed:

    Remember to defrost before your turkey (overnight or buy it fresh)
    boil it for 10 to 15mins, helps reduces some of that fat.
    Drain the turkey
    add your ingredients to the pan, use the garlic paste with olive oil, to soften those veggies for a couple of minutes, then add your turkey and tomato sauce and also your seasoning.
    this shouldn’t take over 20 mins, total cooking time 40mins max, I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS IS 8 HOURS.

    add garlic paste, preferably the ones that comes with olive oil, enhances the flavour. TRUST ME plus you don’t need a lot.
    If you aren’t too fuzz about carbs. Use beans, lentils or chickpeas, etc. 
    Use Cholula hot sauce or any sauce you prefer. I personally do not add chillies, I add bell peppers and onions and the spice comes from a hot sauce
    If you are a vegetarian, adding any legume/beans can be a protein replacement. Or you can replace the turkey for some tofu.

  • Hey bro, great video, why not make a intro for the 2 or 3 types of videos you do. I.e. weekly meal prep, grocery haul, single meal prep ect. To separate your videos and have it a bit more professional. Just a thought.

  • I really don’t get the idea of 4+4 hours of cooking. The longer you cook something, the more it deteriorates as far as I know. Besides, turkey is nothing like for instance mutton/lamb witch is quite hard-bitten and tough.

  • guys i know this has nothing to do with this recipe but since its the most recent posted maybe the buff dudes or anyone can help me, now my goal is to get a little bit bigger and lose my belly fat for my abbs, i gym 5 days a week, for breakfast i eat grains/oats/rasins/apricots along with a protien shake with honey berrys and cinnamon, for my post work out i normally have a tuna sandwich with wholemeal bread and a protien shake with berries and bannana, for snacks i normally have more tuna or eggs or somthing, for dinner i normally have fish, or really lean beef with veg, after i finished with a protien and i consist of this everyday, but unfortuntally i dont see any change in my stomach, i have high protien everyday i stay away from sugars i eat not a high amout of carbs and eat good low fats please help me, along with doing 10minute of rowing machines or a 2-3k run on tredmill. 

  • Hello Scooby, I been a follower for about 4 years now, I just wanted to tell you that here in my house in Mexico, my family and I are super excited to use your more advanced custom meal plan, we believe that the price that you are giving is worth our health. Thank you for you knowledge and for passing your experience for generations. The world needs more persons like you Scoobs!! Keep it up!!
    From Colima, México. The town that even Mexicans don’t know about! (That’s a fact ☺️)

  • In the crockpot as we speak. I ended up just browning the turkey on the stove and draining it to save some time, in case you don’t have a full 8 hrs to spare. Smells delicious, great recipe!

  • Great video and definitely want to try this recipe! Any idea if this could be simmered on the stove if one doesn’t have a slow cooker?

  • Save yourself 4 hours by just lightly browning that turkey meat on the stove in 5-10 min (another dish to clean though) drain and starting from there.  (Amirite?)  Gonna make this this weekend for sure.  Thanks Buffdudes!
