If you find some leftover harissa paste in the back of your fridge, show it some love by turning it into this quick, low-calorie chilli. Because harissa is made from a blend of red chillies, it has a lovely smoky flavour. We love that you can let the potatoes do their thing in the oven while you whip up the turkey-mince chilli.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

We serve this chilli with a side of pickled red onion. Peel and thinly slice a red onion and add to a small bowl with 3 tbsp white wine vinegar, a pinch of salt and pinch of granulated sweetener. Toss to coat and leave to one side while you make the chilli.

Swap This

You could swap the potatoes for sliced sweet potatoes and use other types of mince if you prefer.

Lovely twist on chilli
I used sweet potatoes for my portion and normal potatoes for my bf. Easy to do both using my airfryer. I also added a bit of water at the end as the chilli was looking a little dry, literally rinsed out tomato tin with about 50 mls and used that.
Loved the smokey heat of this recipe
I swapped the turkey mince for 5% fat pork mince and as I didn't have any feta, I used low fat grated mature cheddar.
Delicious hearty meal that can be personalised.
Absolutely delicious. We had Basmati rice with ours too 😋 as I wasn't too sure about just the potatoes but either way works. Also if you like spicy add more chilli's 🌶.
Delicious 😋
This recipe was so easy to do and tastes amazing, I added more harissa paste for a extra kick, I will definitely be doing this again 😁
A big hit for any chilli lovers!
I don't like a lot of spice so I used only 2 tablespoons rather than 3 of the harissa paste and it was the perfect balance of spice for me, however if you like it hotter then go for 3 tablespoons!
Didn’t have harissa paste so used 3 tablespoons of chipotle paste And used Worcestershire sauce instead of Henderson’s relish because didn’t have any
Delicious turkey chilli that is so filling!
This was so delicious we doubled it and made a batch in the slow cooker for a few nights. It took about 7 hours. Also threw in a few extra veggies too.

‘Delicious twist on chilli. Goes will with potatoes (I do mine in the air fryer on the chips setting) or with rice. I like to add a little sour cream as a side when I have the calories to do so’
