Turkey Chili

I'm slowly discovering the joys of ground turkey and this chili recipe is one of my own recent concoctions. I'm not a fan of spicy foods, but I'm sure you could add peppers or jalapenos to this recipe to give it the "kick" you like. It's a filling, relatively healthy and easy to whip up for a last minute meal. Enjoy!

Turkey Chili


2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cups chicken broth
1 can (19 oz.) black beans
1 can (28 oz.) crushed, fire roasted tomatoes
1 can (16 oz.) sweet corn
2 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Salt & Pepper


1. In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium high and cook onions and ground turkey until meat is no longer pink - about 8-10 minutes. Add some salt & pepper.

2. In a separate, small bowl, add chili powder, paprika. oregano, cumin and cinnamon together - blending the spices well. Add to the meat and onions and stir for 2 minutes.

3. Add canned black beans, tomatoes and corn. Stir for about 1 minute.

4. Add 2 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 35-45 minutes. Stir every 10 to 15 minutes.

5. After chili is finished, if you like you it thick, add 2 tablespoons of all-purpose to the pot and stick for 1 minute.
