The “BEST EVER” Turkey Chili

December 8, 2014


I’m not the biggest chili person, but when the weather cools off, and football is in full swing, chili is the easiest way to feed a group of people!  I came across this recipe on Food52 (one of my FAVS), and while I’m not sure it’s the BEST EVER, it really is a tasty (and easy) addition to your chili line-up.

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 medium to large onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 cup dark beer
  • One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • One 15 1/2-ounce can kidney beans, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce or chile paste
  1. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add tomato paste, onion, garlic, and red pepper, then cook until softened (stirring occasionally).
  3. Add the chili powder, hot paprika, coriander, oregano, and cinnamon; stir and cook for a minute or so.
  4. Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until lightly browned.
  5. Pour in the beer and allow to cook down slightly.
  6. Add the tomatoes, beans, and hot sauce or chili paste.
  7. Allow the chili to simmer, uncovered, until thickened, about 40 minutes.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and top with sour cream, chopped green onion, cilantro, and/or shredded cheese.

I also made pickled jalapenos, which was a fun garnish idea as well!
