Turkey Chili

Turkey Chili


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 pound ground turkey
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
2 (15 oz) cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz) can sweet corn, rinsed and drained


1. Place oil in a large pot and place over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and red pepper and sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Next, add ground turkey and break up the meat; cook until no longer pink. Next, add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, and salt; stir for about 20 seconds.

2. Next, add in tomatoes, chicken broth, kidney beans, and corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until chili thickens and flavors come together. Taste and adjust seasonings and salt as necessary. Garnish with anything you’d like.

3. Makes 6 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each.
