Recipe: A New Fall Chili featuring ground turkey!

Posted by Jim Connely on

One of my favorite things to do is modifying a newly discovered recipe. This time of year is perfect for fall produce and new ideas. This recipe is one sent to me from Cookie and Kate, which is a phenomenal site for vegetarian recipes! For this recipe, I added/modified:

  •  ground turkey
  • white kidney beans
  • ground chipotle powder
  • switched vegetable broth to chicken broth

Recipe Ingredients: 

1 yellow or red onion, chopped

2 peppers (any color will work, I used red and green)

1 tablespoon olive oil (you can get this at the Calico Bean:)) 

3 large sweet potatoes, cut and peeled (1⁄2-inch cubes)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp and black pepper

5 garlic cloves (minced) or 2 heaping tsp of minced from a jar

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon ground chipotle powder

2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I used the organic, it's so much better)! 

1 large can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes or canned tomatoes (leave the juice in)

1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained

1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, drained

2 cups chicken broth

 Directions (Crock Pot or slow cooker):

  • First, heat a frying pan and cook the onions until translucent. Add the onions to your crock pot. Next, I took the ground turkey and browned it. Add to the crockpot. 
  • Take all remaining ingredients and put in your crockpot. I cooked it on low for 8 hours. You can cook it on high for 4 hours and that would work great too! 

Enjoy this amazing chili!
