Turkey Chili

Well I knew it was a Sunday in the fall when football was on tv and chili was cooking. It has gotten chilly here in Boston over the past week so I was in need of some warm comfort food.

1 package 99% ground turkey meat
4 cans stewed tomatoes 15 oz. crushed with hands
2 kidney beans 15 oz. drained
2 tsp. tomato paste
¾ cup chicken stock
2 cups chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup chopped green pepper
Olive oil to taste
2-4 tbl Chili powder
2 tbl ground cumin
2 tbl red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried oregano

First you must brown the turkey in a pan and since I try to not use too much oil I coat the pan with chicken stock instead. Cook the turkey until it is fully cooked and slightly browned.

As that is cooking, in a stock pot place the peppers and onions and cook until tender.

Then add the garlic, chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes stir to combine.

Add tomatoes, tomato paste, chicken stock, beans, oregano and cooked turkey meat. Bring to a boil and let simmer uncovered for about a half hour to an hour.
