Homemade Turkey Chili

I made turkey chili for the first time and it came out great! The best thing about making chili is that you can adjust it to make it to your liking! Prep time is about 10 minutes and cooking time is about 45 minutes so enjoy!

What you'll need:

  • 1 1/2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 Serrano Chili
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce (without spices)
  • 1 15oz can Kidney Beans (undrained)
  • 1/4c Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Stalks Celery
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/4tsp Oregano
  • 1/4tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • French Bread
  • 1lb Ground Turkey
  • Cream Cheese
All fresh veggies are minced.

Make It:

Start by cooking the turkey in a frying pan until about 90% fully cooked. While the turkey is cooking, in a medium sized pot, add all of the veggies in the pot on low with some olive oil (1tsp) and sauté until translucent. Add some salt and pepper while sautéing. Once veggies are aromatic and translucent, add the kidney beans and tomato sauce. Simmer for approximately 5 minutes then add all of the spices.

Add the turkey to the pot and let simmer on low for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking on low for 20 minutes and add additional spices to taste for your liking and then add the Cheddar Cheese, cubed . If you like it spicier add some hot sauce, or jalepenos (I like Mt. Olive Jalepeno slices from the jar). Continue to stir and let simmer for another couple of minutes until the cheese is melted in.

Serve your Turkey Chili in a bowl, add a dollop or two of the cream cheese on top and mix in, with a side of sliced French Bread. Scoop your chili out of the bowl with your bread or spoon it on top and enjoy.
