21 Day Fix Turkey Chili

Love love love this recipe with my modifications. šŸ˜‰ I made this for my latest round of 21 Day Fix and had it every day during week 1 — so yummy. I am going to give you the exact instructions from the Fixate cookbook and at the end I’ll give you my modifications to the recipe.

1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

1 lb cooked 93% lean ground turkey breast (or lean grass-fed ground beef)

8 tsp crumbled goat cheese



  1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion & bell peppers, cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

Fix Container Counts

Serves: 6 (1 1/2 cups each)

Container Equivalents (per serving): 1/2 green, 1 yellow, 1 red & 1/2 teaspoon


Caterina’s ModificationsĀ (okay let’s be honest, my mom’s modifications)

  • We skipped the red wine & added 2 cups of water
  • Less is more when it comes to me — so I did less onion & less on all the herbs
  • We added 1 chicken bouillion cube for favor (because I didn’t add the wine)


I didn’t include the cilantro or the cheese until each day when I measured it out and instead I put 1 blue container of feta cheese in it — delicious!


Here’s a look at the recipe straight from the amazing Fixate cookbook (I love this cookbook!!):
