Turkey Chili

Print Friendly and PDF

Here's my new recipe for turkey chili.  I like to add a dollop of sour cream on top with shredded cheese and chopped chives.  Tastes great on cold, rainy days, and even better the seecond day.  My cute little grand-daughter Madeline Ava Coffey (8 mos.) is pictured below. 

1-lb. ground turkey
2 cans kidney beans, drained
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 green or red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
22 oz. can of diced tomatoes (use the liquid)
3/4 cup of tomato sauce
2 T chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 T cornmeal
3 splashes of Tabasco sauce

Optional toppings:
Sour cream
Shredded cheese
Chives or green onions, chopped fine

Brown the ground turkey in a little olive oil.  Set aside.  Saute the onions, bell pepper and garlic in a little olive oil.  Add the ground turkey and the rest of the ingredients.  Simmer for an hour on the stove top until the flavors have blended.  Serve in a soup bowl with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese and chopped chives on top.  You can also cook the chili in a crockpot on low for 8 hours.
