My favorite ultimate turkey chili recipe has a little bit of spice, a hearty amount of beans, and is packed with corn and tomatoes.
Prep Time:20 minutes
Cook Time:6 hours
Total Time:6 hours 20 minutes
2 tsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground turkey
2 cups frozen corn
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup tomato juice
1 (15 oz) can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can light red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and turkey, break up turkey and cook until no longer pink.
Add turkey mixture to slow cooker and top with remaining ingredients.
Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or high heat for 3 hours.
Taste and adjust seasonings and salt as necessary. Garnish with your favorite toppings like avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, Fritos, and jalapenos.
To make this recipe without a slow cooker, use a large pot to cook turkey and onion. Then add remaining ingredients plus an additional cup of chicken broth. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
