A rich and smoky chili that is ridiculously easy to throw together.

Total Time45 mins
Course: Main Course, Soup
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings


  • crockpot


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 bell peppers any color, diced
  • 2 cans roasted tomatoes drained
  • 4 cups low sodium broth
  • 2 cans beans any variety, rinsed and drained
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground pepper
  • 1-1½ tbsp. chili powder
  • tsp. smoked paprika
  • cayenne powder to taste (optional)


  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil on medium in a large pot. Cook ground turkey, breaking into small pieces as it browns. Remove and set aside.
  • Using the same pot, heat other tablespoon olive oil over medium. Sauté onions and bell peppers with salt and pepper for 3-4 minutes or until slightly tender. Add tomatoes and sauté for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add broth and seasonings and bring heat up to a light simmer; simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until chili thickens and is fragrant. Reduce heat and add beans. Test flavor and adjust seasonings accordingly.
  • The chili is now done but just like a fine wine, gets better with time. We recommend making a day before you plan on eating it.
