Turkey Chili

Nate and I love chili. Here is another easy chili recipe for you!

This one is a chunky meaty chili made from ground turkey or ground chicken, I go with whichever is on sale. Please note that this is a very spicy recipe!! What I have listed below has quite a kick and the original recipe calls for more spice that that!

Onions, Peppers, and Garlic
Add meat
Once meat is done, add spices and other things
Add sauce, tomatoes, beans, and corn

Serve with chips!
When you cook ground turkey it tends to clump instead of crumble like ground beef so when you put the meat in, stir it constantly and keep breaking it up with the back of your spoon.

If it is too spicy, add in a little at a time, some cocoa powder, cheese, sour cream, plain yogurt, etc.

Even though the recipe says to let it simmer for 50 minutes, I let it simmer for longer or until I'm ready to eat it. Just make sure you stir it otherwise the bottom might scorch.

This recipe freezes well.

Turkey Chili
makes approx 5 big servings

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 med green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 lbs of ground turkey/chicken
1 heaping tsp of chili powder, red pepper flakes, paprika, cumin
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/2 - 3/4 of a 16 oz jar of Salsa
8 oz can of tomato sauce
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of corn

Heat olive oil in a large pot over med heat. Add onion, garlic, green peppers and stir until onion is starting to look clear.

Add the meat, stir and break up the meat until it is no longer pink.

Add spices, Worcestershire sauce, tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, and corn. If you are hesitant, add in half of the spice and add more as it cooks down and you test it.

Let it simmer for about 50 minutes and stir occasionally.

Top with cheese and serve with chips!
