Quick & (Not So) Dirty Turkey Chili
A rich and smoky chili that is ridiculously easy to throw together.
Servings: 4 servings
- 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
- ⅛ 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.
