How to Make Your Own Winter-Friendly Panera Turkey Chili

Written by Luisa Davis on . Posted in food

I love eating at soup and sandwich places like Panera, and at one of my recent trips to the eatery, I decided to try the turkey chili. Typically, I am not a huge fan of chili because, honestly, the beans give me gas, but this chili was out of sight. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to try to create the Panera turkey chili recipe at home. The results were terrific, and it is now something that I eat quite frequently.
