There are so many fun ways to use summer veggies - grilled, zoodle'd, roasted...the list goes on. This chili is chock-full of delicious summer goodness and is a perfect crowd pleaser. Freeze any leftovers to enjoy when the weather gets chilly and you miss the sunshine!

1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink, then transfer to a bowl.


2. Add the remaining olive oil to the pan and add the zucchini, squash, onion, red pepper, jalapeño and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.



3. Add the cooked turkey back to the pot, followed by the chicken stock, tomatoes, spices and beans. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
