Chilly Day Turkey Chili Comfort Food

One of the best things about the chilly weather, is being able to get cozy with a nice hot meal. Most of my comfort foods are meals I can make in the crock pot. Its super easy to put together in the morning and it cooks all day without needing my attention. One of our favorite chilly day comfort foods, especially during football season, is turkey chili.
