Winter Comfort Food: Crockpot Turkey and Edamame Chili Recipe

It’s that time of year when we could all use a little break from the snow and cold. If we can’t escape the freezing temps, we might as well embrace the wintry wonderland and warm up with a tasty twist on a classic comfort dish: turkey and edamame chili.

Did you know the ground turkey in this chili made its way from the farm to your grocery shelves all because of South Dakota soybean farmers? Poultry is the number one consumer of U.S. soybeans. Soy is a favorite for animal nutritionists who work with farmers to develop meal plans for farm animals because it is a good source of protein and packed with essential amino acids.

You too will get that extra protein from the edamame in this delicious dish. Watch the video to see just how easy it is to embrace those cool temps.
