OK! Let’s cook:

I like to use a Dutch Oven for these types of turkey chili recipes. So, take your olive or coconut oil and put in the dutch oven over a medium heat and add your fresh ingredients of the garlic, onion,the red bell pepper, the green pepper and the habanero.

Now cook the mixture until the onions are “sweated.” Now add your turkey and put the cover on and let this cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the turkey if using ground is not pink anymore. When making turkey chili recipes you must make sure that the meat is not pink. Make sure that you have your spoon handy so that you can taste the mixture and add anything that you would like to.

Now it is time to add the chili powder, the paprika both sweet and smoked, the oregano, the cumin and the salt. Splash in some Worcestershire sauce and add to taste. Now add the fire roasted tomatoes and some more green chilies that you either have fresh or from the can. Stir this together. Add your tomato sauce and tomato paste now and stir it together.

Now last but not least add your beans! Stir this mixture up and let simmer for about five minutes. Then you can add either your 1/2 cup of red wine or beer to the mix and stir. Once this is done you can put the lid on and just leave some space for some steam to escape as it simmers for about an hour. Last step is to add your corn and chulula and let the mix simmer for about another 15 to 30 minutes on low.

When this turkey chili recipe is done, turn off the heat and allow it to cool until you can safely handle the dutch oven or pot you used. I like to make this dish a day in advance and let the flavors blend together so I put in the fridge until my guests arrive the next day and then reheat it and then it is chow down time!

These types of turkey chili recipes are actually quite low in fat and are quite high in protein. Chili recipes of all types are a low cost quality dish that is often overlooked. There are so many ways to make chili it is mind numbing! Try making some chili today!
