I keep making this recipe and always plan to take a picture to post on the blog, but each time it gets gobbled up before I get a chance! This time the chili was off limits till I took a picture. That means I get to give you the recipe, woohoo!
This chili is so quick to put together, but tastes like you slaved over your stove for hours. You can eat a bowl of it on its own or serve with cornbread. The other day I had some with homemade sweet potato chips. My husband also likes to have it in a pita pocket. You can also dip in some pita or corn chips. Any way it is served, it will be fantastic.
Feel free to use any meat of choice. I like to use ground turkey, but ground meat or chicken or even a combo of the two work great.
Tasty Turkey Chili
500 grams ground turkey
1/2 Tb olive oil
1 can black beans
1 can white beans
1/2 can corn or 3/4 cups frozen corn
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 Tb paprika
1 1/2 tsp each of cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder
1/4 tsp each of allspice, unsweetened cocoa powder, and chili powder
1-2 tsp salt
shake of pepper
1/2 cup water
Heat oil in a soup pot. Add in ground turkey. Use a spoon to break up the turkey into smaller pieces. Once cooked 90% through add in the paprika, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir till turkey is coated in spices. Saute a bit longer till fragrant.
Drain and rinse the canned beans and corn. Add to the turkey mixture and mix. Then add in the whole can of crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup of water. Stir and then add in the allspice, cocoa powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then cover and cook on a low flame for about 30 minutes.
If the chili seems too thick for you, add another 1/2 cup of water.
You can add more chili powder. I don’t as I do not like spicy foods and want it mild for the kids to eat.
Feel free to top with slices avocado and cilantro for garnish.
