The Best Turkey Chili Ever!

The Best Turkey Chili Ever!

This chili is amazing, hearty and comforting especially now that fall temperatures are finally here!  It is super healthy, full of fiber, protein and veggies!   The recipe is a breeze to make and it’s ready in less than an hour. You can also make it in the slow cooker and cook it on low for 8 hours. Just remember to brown the meat on the stove before adding it to your crockpot. However, we find that the chili is thicker when you make it on the stove. Also, the good news is that it tastes even better the next day! So don’t be afraid to make a big pot even if it’s just you or you and someone else, as you can eat the delicious leftovers all week long!

If you’re into spicy chili, we suggest you add some cayenne pepper (1/2 tsp or more).   You can also serve it with tortilla chips and sometimes over white rice. Oh, and don’t forget the shredded cheddar and the sour cream! They make all the difference and the flavors complement each other perfectly!

Instructions
  1. In a large heavy bottomed pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onions and the garlic and sauté until translucent. Make sure you stir constantly so you don’t burn the garlic!
  2. Add the bell peppers and cook for a couple of minutes, until tender. Add the turkey and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon (or even a potato masher).
  3. Add the black beans, the kidney (or pinto) beans, the crushed tomatoes, the diced tomatoes, the chicken (or vegetable) stock, the chili powder, brown sugar, hot sauce, oregano, basil, garlic powder, sea salt and cayenne pepper (if using) and stir until everything is combined.
  4. Once the chili boils, lower the heat to low and let it simmer uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes or until it thickens. Top it off with the green onions, a handful of shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream and serve!
