Easy, quick, & delicious chili recipe to warm you up on cold days!
I love chili but I’m not a big fan of red meat. So I googled Turkey Chili and found a great looking recipe at Whole Foods. Their Touchdown Turkey Chili looked like a great jumping off point for my chili. I kept the recipe almost the same and made a few small changes.
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium sweet onion, diced
3 large or 5 small cloves garlic, chopped
1 lb ground turkey – 93% – 7% Fat ratio
1 (28-ounce) can chopped/diced tomatoes, with their liquid
1 can of light beer (I prefer Coors Light)
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili pepper (or more to taste)
dash of salt
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 can red kidney beans, strained
1 can sweet yellow and white corn, strained
1 can black been, strained
some grated cheese of your liking
Use large pot. Place over medium heat, add olive oil, diced onions & garlic. Heat for 10 min. Stirring occasionally till you sweat the onions & they appear almost translucent.
Add defrosted ground turkey meat. Use spatula or fork to pull apart. Cook completely until slightly browned.
Mix in tomatoes, beer, cumin, chili peppers flakes, chili powder, dash of salt & pepper.
Simmer for 30 minutes on medium to low heat. Let the flavors develop.
Add in the kidney beans, corn, & black beans. Salt & Pepper to taste.
Continue to cook on low heat for another 10-15 minutes.
Let cool! Enjoy! I like mine with cornbread, chips or rice. (We had rice with this!)
